UN GLOBAL COMPACT
The Global Compact is a framework for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption . As the world's largest, global corporate citizenship initiative, the Global Compact is first and foremost concerned with exhibiting and building the social legitimacy of business and markets.
The Global Compact is a network. At its core are the Global Compact Office and six UN agencies, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the International Labour Organization (ILO), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
The Global Compact involves all the relevant social actors: governments, who defined the principles on which the initiative is based; companies, whose actions it seeks to influence; labour, in whose hands the concrete process of global production takes place; civil society organizations, representing the wider community of stakeholders; and The United Nations, the world's only truly global political forum, as an authoritative convener and facilitator.
THE ASSOCIATION OF GERMAN ENGINEERS (VDI) was established in 1856 and is today the largest engineering association in Western Europe. In Germany, it is recognized as the representative of 132 000 engineers and natural scientists both within the profession and in the public arena. As the leading institution for training and technology transfer among experts, it is also a partner at the preliminary stages of the decision-making process in matters of technological policy and for all questions that engineers face in their professional or public lives.
In 1860, the Technical Association for Iron Metallurgy was founded. It became the German Iron and Steel Institute (VDEh) in 1880. Only recently, in 2003, the institute was renamed “Stahlinstitut VDEh.”
The aim of the institute is to encourage technical, technical-scientific, and scientific cooperation between engineers with a view to advancing steel technology and promoting steel as a material. In the pursuit of this goal, Steel Institute VDEh relies on a research and experience sharing approach which has been deliberately extended to include equipment manufacturers and suppliers for international joint projects. Today, Steel Institute VDEh has a membership of about 9,000 individuals from the sectors of industry, engineering, science or business administration. In addition, some 100 companies active in iron and steel-making and associated industries have joined the organization.
