The UN Global Compact is an international CSR initiative by the UN Secretary-General, Mr. Kofi Annan through which he invited the business leaders to come forth and join hands with the UN agencies, labour and civil society to support universal environmental and social principles. The Global Compact contains ten principles that focus on human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.

Various stakeholders participated in the meeting, including the private sector, international organizations, NGOs, and Media. The UN Global Compact already has 10 participants (signatories) from Bangladesh and BEI feels that, like the other countries in Asia and other parts of the world, Bangladesh is ready to start its local network activities with the Global Compact as the platform to begin partnership programs in CSR in Bangladesh.
