Author: UN Global Compact , Published on: 19 September 2013

As a key agent of change, companies can make a critical contribution to economic development, peace and stability in the areas where they operate...Companies provide jobs and revenue to a local economy. They can set an example of sustainable business practices. And they can provide direct financial help for various programs through strategic social investments. Fifteen companies have shared their experience...on the way they managed the risks of operating in conflict-affected areas.

The examples...seek to address a wide range of issues faced by companies, such as supply chain management and child labor.
