    International Organization of Employers

    Confederation of Asia-Pacific Employers

    Since its creation in 1920, the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) has been supporting and representing the worldwide business

    community in international labour and social policy forums across the multilateral system, and in other high-level forums such as the G20,

    with the aim of ensuring that such policy promotes the viability of business.

    In meetings of the International Labour Organization (ILO), including its Governing Body and International Labour Conference, the IOE acts as the Secretariat to the Employers' Group.

    Today, the IOE is proud of its membership of

    151 national employer organisations from 144 countries all over the world.

    The Asia-Pacific region is undergoing major and rapid economic and social changes in an economy characterized by continued globalisation, technological change and enhanced competition.

    Employers' organizations in the region need to better understand these national, sub-regional, regional and international developments, so as to better serve their member enterprises in order to make the environment in the Asia-Pacific region an attractive and better place to do business in, as well as to promote social and economic development for its people. Thus, they need to discuss these issues and to develop a well-coordinated common response and strategy to deal with them.

    We, the employers' organizations which participated in the 5th Asia-Pacific High-Level Employers' Conference held in Singapore, October 2000, conscious of our role in the formulation of socio-economic policies for stability and growth, recognizing the challenges and opportunities of globalization, and realizing the imperative need for cooperation, cohesion and interaction in a borderless economy, hereby establish

    United Nations Global Compact

    The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. By doing so, business, as a primary driver of globalization, can help ensure that markets, commerce, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere.

    As social, political and economic challenges (and opportunities) — whether occurring at home or in other regions — affect business more than ever before, many companies recognize the need to collaborate and partner with governments, civil society, labour and the United Nations.

    This ever-increasing understanding is reflected in the Global Compact's rapid growth. With over 10,000 corporate participants and other stakeholders from over 130 countries, it is the largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative in the world.
