In celebration of our 10 year history, the Global Compact Network Australia (GCNA) is convening its inaugural flagship conference – ‘Rebuilding trust in corporate Australia – Business as an Agent of Sustainable Change’.

The conference will bring together 250 local and global leaders from business, civil society, academia and Government to discuss trust and role that business can play in rebuilding trust in corporate Australia. Read the full Agenda here.

The conference will explore how business can catalyse collective action and impact on the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles, with a focus on human rights, environmental sustainability and anti-corruption/ transparency, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
