Overview of the UN 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 12,000 corporate participants and other stakeholders from over 145 countries, it is the largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative in the world.

Endorsed by chief executives, the Global Compact is a practical framework for the development, implementation, and disclosure of sustainability policies and practices, offering participants a wide spectrum of workstreams, management tools and resources — all designed to help advance sustainable business models and markets. (See How to Participate.)

The UN Global Compact works toward the vision of a sustainable and inclusive global economy which delivers lasting benefits to people, communities, and markets.


To help realize this vision, the initiative seeks to:

 1.  Mainstream the Global Compact’s Ten Principles in business strategy and operations around the world; and
 2.  Catalyze business action in support of UN goals and issues, with emphasis on collaboration and collective action.

With these objectives in mind, the Global Compact has shaped an initiative that provides collaborative solutions to the most fundamental challenges facing both business and society. The initiative seeks to combine the best properties of the UN, such as moral authority and convening power, with the private sector’s solution-finding strengths, and the expertise and capacities of a range of key stakeholders. The Global Compact is global and local; private and public; voluntary yet accountable.



The benefits of engagement include the following:  

  Adopting an established and globally recognized policy framework for the development, implementation, and disclosure of environmental, social, and governance policies and

  Sharing best and emerging practices to advance practical solutions and strategies to common challenges.

  Advancing sustainability solutions in partnership with a range of stakeholders, including UN agencies, governments, civil society, labour, and other non-business interests.

  Linking business units and subsidiaries across the value chain with the Global Compact's Local Networks around the world — many of these in developing and emerging markets.

  Accessing the United Nations' extensive knowledge of and experience with sustainability and development issues.


  Utilizing UN Global Compact management tools and resources, and the opportunity to engage in specialized workstreams in the environmental, social and governance realms.


A more detailed analysis of the benefits of participation in the Global Compact can be found in The Importance of Voluntarism — which also focuses on the importance of the Global Compact as a complement rather than substitute for regulatory regimes

Finally, the Global Compact incorporates a transparency and accountability policy known as the Communication on Progress (COP). The annual posting of a COP is an important demonstration of a participant's commitment to the UN Global Compact and its principles. Participating companies are required to follow this policy, as a commitment to transparency and disclosure is critical to the success of the initiative. Failure to communicate will result in a change in participant status and possible expulsion.

In summary, the Global Compact exists to assist the private sector in the management of increasingly complex risks and opportunities in the environmental, social and governance realms, seeking to embed markets and societies with universal principles and values for the benefit of all.

Partnership with Rolls-Royce

RGK+Z&A signed a long-term service agreement with Rolls-Royce for spare parts supply, supervision and maintenance for the Hlagwa Power Plant (Phase II) project today. The agreement was signed at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in London by Lars Eikeland, President and CEO of Bergen Engines, and Mr Zeya Thura Mon, Group CEO of RGK+Z&A Group & Managing Director of Zeya & Associates; and witnessed by Hugo Swire, Minister of State at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, and His Excellency Mr U Khin Maung Soe, Minister of Electric Power (MOEP), The Republic of the Union of Myanmar.

Earlier this year, Bergen Engines, part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems (RRPS), signed a contract with RGK+Z&A Group of Myanmar for delivery of engines and associated systems for Phase II of the country's first medium speed gas engine-based power plant, the Hlagwa Power Plant.

The Hlawga Power Plant, located in Yangon near the Hlawga CCPP and Main Substation of MEPE, is a gas engine-based Independent Power Plant (IPP) owned by RGK+Z&A Group. It will deliver power to the Yangon grid and the contract stipulates a capacity of 25 MW. A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) and other related agreements for the power plant have already been concluded by RGK+Z&A Group with MOEP.

RGK+Z&A Group is an engineering company based in Myanmar which focuses on the thermal power generation, green energy, transmission and distribution industries. The Hlawga Power Plant (Phase I) was built last year using high speed engines and was the first plant to conclude a PPA with MOEP.

"We are excited to be a partner in further developing the electrification of Myanmar," said Lars Eikeland, at the ceremony. "Z&A is a very competent partner and we are confident that this will be a successful project. We are also very pleased that this project could be financed by loan facilities from GIEK, the Norwegian Exoprt Credit Agency."

"We are committed to provide uninterrupted electricity to Myanmar by Power Generation with minimum resources. We believe that with the state of art solutions from Rolls-Royce Power Systems, we could achieve more output to deliver the Power needs", said Zeya Thura Mon.

The energy infrastructure in Myanmar is still developing. The country's electrification rate is 26% and demand is expected to grow rapidly. Annual growth of 15% is projected. Gas is available in centres of electricity demand and can be the source of more environmentally friendly power through the use of high efficiency gas engines.

The new power plant will be the first medium speed gas engine based power plant in the country. The contract scope includes the supply of three B35:40V20 gas engines plus complete system engineering.
