July 1, 2015, New York, NY – The Global Sourcing Council (GSC) announces that it has joined the United Nations Global Compact. The Global Compact, www.unglobalcompact.org, is a strategic policy initiative for businesses dedicated to the ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption.
“Our participation in the Global Compact underscores GSC’s commitment to promoting sustainable and responsible sourcing solutions around the globe,” said Wanda R. Lopuch, Ph.D., Chairman of the Board of the Global Sourcing Council. Through active participation in the Global Compact, GSC presents voices of the global sourcing community in the historical discussion of the private sourcing sector’s role in the execution of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which are to chart the global development for the next 15 years.
“GSC will work tirelessly to spread information on the 10 Principles of the Global Compact and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) within its global community and encourage our world-wide members to make formal commitments to the Global Compact principles,” said Daniel Lang, the Chair of the GSC GC Committee and the Senior VP at Sutherland Global Services. Our goal is to attract 100 GSC community members to join the 12,000 participants from 145 countries already committed to Global Compact principles and socially responsible sourcing practices, and also to continue to do well by doing good.
Global Sourcing Council is dedicated to public accountability and transparency, and our involvement with the Global Compact is a huge step in reaffirming our commitment to stakeholder dialogue and socially responsible sourcing practices.
