The Local Network can assist in connecting the local members to the 76 UN Global Compact local networks across the globe so that companies and other stakeholders can learn or work with other organizations to achieve common goals in achieving the 17 SDGs in their respective countries.
GCNP has developed a strong relationship with the UN System in the Philippines by being privileged to have the Executive Representative of the UN Secretary General UN Resident Coordinator and Resident Representative of UNDP, Mr. Ola Almgren as its Board of Trustee Adviser. GCNP has also been appointed as part of the Sustainability Council of UNDP. In view of this GCNP has access to the different UN Agencies for collaboration.
