EcoVadis releases an exclusive study, which assesses the CSR performance of more than 500 UN Global Compact participants. This study cross-examines how participants in the United Nations Global Compact compare to non-participants in regards to Corporate Social Responsible (CSR) performance. The UN Global Compact asks companies to, “embrace,  support  and  enact,  within  their  sphere  of  influence,  a  set  of  core  values”  as  outlined  by  the  10   Principles.The research is a first step towards an assessment of  UN Global Compact participants’ performance on CSR issues. It aims is to stimulate further research, dialogue and innovation towards an effective implementation of the UNGC principles and goals. It is based on a sample of more than 3,500 companies and benchmarks the performance of more than 500 Global Compact participants from 2008 to 2011.

The key objectives of this study are to:

  • Identify to which extent Global Compact participation translates into tangible CSR actions that have a positive impact on CSR performance.
  •  Identify whether there is a correlation between EcoVadis CSR scores and participation in the U.N. Global Compact.
  • Encourage further research into the extent to which CSR performance is significantly impacted by participation in the U.N. Global Compact.
