Submission of communication of engagement with UN Global Compact

The fifth communication on engagement describes actions to support the Global Compact principles

In 2011, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) joined as a participant of the United Nationals Global Compact. Since 2015, CA ANZ submitted our communication of progress (CoP), which requires participants to outline their activities over a biennial period, which align with the UNGC’s ten principles relating to human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

In October 2023, we submitted our fifth communication of engagement (COE) highlighting activities undertaken between 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2023. In our COE we focused on the following areas of engagement:

  • Deliver education on topics related to the Global Compact
  • Conduct research and thought leadership in relation to the Global Compact
  • Disseminate the Global Compact Principles
  • And other activities relating to the Global Compact Principles
