Our world is going through pronounced changes resulting in elevated uncertainties and new risks. Keep working to make business a force for good. Together, we can respond to the urgency of our global challenges and construct a better tomorrow. But to do this, we need to work together through a driving commitment to human rights, sustainability, and the power of partnerships and cooperation,"

GCNT’s operations will focus on encouraging the private sectors to operate their business with responsibility and engage in business strategies that correspond to the four core principles of sustainability. The majority of activities initiated by GCNT will be training courses about the latest discoveries and global trends relating to sustainable development, knowledge-sharing seminars on topics such as child labour, and other activities that allow participants to share experiences and discuss ways to promote responsible business practices for sustainable development.
