Fresno State and the United Nations Global Compact
The United Nations Global Compact is the world’s largest voluntary corporate citizenship initiative. The UN Global Compact aims to mobilize a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world we want.
California State University, Fresno supports the ten principles of the Global Compact with respect to human rights, labor rights, the protection of the environment, and anti-corruption. With this commitment, we express our intent to support and advance those principles.
To make this happen, Fresno State commits to making the Global Compact, the ten principles, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) part of our strategy, culture, day-to-day teaching, research, and service to our local and global community. Some of the ways we plan to participate and engage in the UN Global Compact and advance its goals include:
- Conducting and disseminating faculty and student-led applied research and
thought leadership to advance best practices on the principles and SDGs
- Promoting the UN Global Compact Ten Principles and SDGs and educating a
variety of audiences about the SDGs through community presentations,
projects, and curricular revisions/modifications
- Reviewing and revising our own practices to model sustainable business
