The United Nations Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative and was established in the 2000 as a call to companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, and act to advance inclusive and sustainable prosperity worldwide. On a mission to educate, empower and influence global leaders and managers who maximize the benefits of the Fourth Industrial Revolution for business, government, society and the environment, Thunderbird became the Academic Partner (AP) of the United Nations Global Compact Network USA in 2019.
“Thunderbird’s deep expertise in corporate social responsibility and its longstanding history of partnering with the corporate sector are huge assets for the UN Global Compact.”
-Richard Pearl, Senior Advisor, Network USA
