Global Citizenship

The United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) is a voluntary strategic policy initiative launched by the UN in order to encourage businesses to align their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, environment and anti-corruption. Aitken Spence PLC has been a signatory of the Global Compact since 28th May 2002 and a privileged member of the UNGC steering committee of the Sri Lanka Network. We have also been appointed to the Board of Directors of the UNGC Network Ceylon which is currently chaired by Dr. Rohan Fernando who is a Director of Aitken Spence PLC.

The UNGC Local Network's role is to root the Global Compact within Sri Lanka and to facilitate the progress of companies engaged in the Global Compact with respect to implementation of the ten principles, create opportunities for multi-stakeholder engagement, collective action and to deepen the learning experience of all participants through their own activities and promote action in support of broader UN goals.
