Previous studies on the impact of the UN Global Compact showed room for improvement in developing tools and resources for companies to understand and implement the principles. In a 2004 impact study, participants gave a widespread call for toolkits on the implementation of the principles. Interviews with many participants showed that seeking practical know-how is a major motivation for joining the UN Global Compact as global corporate environmental and social responsibility initiative. It is to this call that the Global Compact Environment Principles Training Package is answering.

We encourage participants in the Compact, service providers and fellow international agencies to make use of this comprehensive package. It is there for your use and adaptation to your needs, for example to promote capacity building in international supply chain management.
