Principles-based Sustainable Recovery For Canadian Businesses

UN Global Compact Network Canada (GCNC) is pleased to launch the Principles-Based Sustainable Recovery for Canadian Businesses guide – a sustainable road to recovery for the Canadian private sector. This guide was created by a group of expert representatives from the Canadian Local Network, the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and the Global Goals to offer guidance and support to Canadian Businesses as they navigate through the challenges of economic recovery.

The guide provides an outline that:

  • Explores the Sustainable Development Goals implications of COVID-19,
  • Identifies concrete steps companies can take to embed the sustainability principles into their recovery responses, and
  • Identifies special considerations for sustainability reporting.
