The Brazil Network of the Global Compact is the third-largest network in the world, with more than 1,100 members. In 2015, there were less than 500 participants. In 2020, according to a survey carried out by Época Negócios, the Global Compact was considered, by companies operating in Brazil, the main corporate sustainability initiative in the country.

Created in 2003, Rede Brasil responds to the headquarters of the Global Compact, in New York, and presides over the Council of Local Networks in Latin America. The projects carried out in the country are developed through the Action Platforms (Action for Water, Action for Sustainable Agro, Action for Human Rights, Action for the Climate, Action against Corruption, Action for the SDGs and Action to Communicate and Engage) and Programs International. About 40 initiatives are currently underway, involving hundreds of companies, as well as UN agencies and government agencies.

There is a growing involvement of Brazilian companies around sustainability and a growing maturity in relation to the topic. Not long ago, many people thought that supporting a project around their units was enough to fulfill their social role. We evolved a lot. Today there is an understanding of the challenges facing humanity and the role of organizations in this context. Several companies operating in Brazil have structured sustainability departments, which control the environmental impacts of the operation and the relationship of their products and services with society and the planet. There are mature and consistent projects that have permanence and sustainable development in their DNA – which go beyond the simple donation of resources to solve an immediate need.

Positioning

The Brazil Network of the Global Compact is a platform that brings together the business sector to act with a measurable impact on the SDGs , both in the evolution of business models and in the implementation of projects in partnership.
As a UN program, Rede Brasil accesses the knowledge of the various agencies and relies on the involvement of public authorities, educational institutions and civil society to generate impact. Thus, it represents an environment that is at the same time neutral and dynamic. It is the experience of the UN in action in business facing the most critical challenges of the SDGs in the country.
Leveraging the business community's potential as an agent of transformation is also to ensure the competitiveness of businesses in the world economy and the inclusion of leaders in reference global decision-making forums.
