UN Global Compact Dashboard
The UN Global Compact Dashboard functions as an online platform that provides Participants with entry to the information stored in the UN Global Compact database. By using the Dashboard, you have the ability to make changes to your organization’s details, update contact information, add or remove contact individuals, request the “We Support” logo from the UN Global Compact, retrieve your username and password, and submit your Communication on Progress (CoP). Utilize the ID and Password you created during the application submission process. In case you don’t have a login ID, you should inform the main contact point of your organization to add you as a contact person.
Use of Logo
The official logos of the United Nations are exclusively reserved for the United Nations Global Compact and cannot, under any circumstances, be used by third parties. This includes the SDGs logo. Non-UN entities are not allowed to use the United Nations logo. The Endorser logo necessitates prior authorization. To use the Endorser logo, you must submit a request using the UN Global Compact Dashboard and provide a sample, mock-up, or screenshot. For this purpose, a UN Global Compact “We Support” logo with a ‘sample’ watermark. Every use of the Endorser logo requires prior permission.
All participants of the UN Global Compact have a participant profile on the website. This is a space to be able to discuss current practices and showcase the initiatives and best practices throughout the business.
Communication On Progress (CoP)
As a participant in the UN Global Compact, it is mandatory for your organization, along with all participant organizations globally, to annually release a public report known as the Progress Communication (CoP). This report highlights the advancements made by your organization in sustainable development. It is a condition of your commitment to the UN Global Compact and must be submitted annually during the universal submission period, between 1 March and 30 June each year. New participants submit their first CoP in the Spring following their joining year.
