With its more than 23,000 participants, the initiative commits to principles and goals that aim for sustainable development in terms of the economy, people's well-being, and the environment. The network also supports and implements the UN's basic values ​​related to human rights, working life principles, the environment and anti-corruption activities worldwide.

"A sustainable future is a goal affecting the whole world, the achievement of which requires work from each of us.
