Recognizing that sharing experience enables companies to lead by example, this resource is designed to provide readers with practical ideas for understanding and managing some of the issues that can arise when operating in conflict-affected and high-risk areas, or engaging with companies in such contexts. This resource is also intended to stimulate dialogue with other stakeholders that are affected by corporate policies and operations and with actors that have expertise and influence in this agenda to identify practical dilemmas.


Responsible Business Advancing Peace includes examples from 14 companies, 8 investors, and 12 Global Compact Local Networks. This guide will be used by the UNGC as an advocacy tool to highlight pilot company experience in applying its leading-practice guidance and will be one of the key materials used to promote the UNGC’s new program “Business for Peace.”


KPMG International has been a longtime supporter of the UNGC. KPMG culture and values are aligned with the UNGC’s 10 principles and are at the heart of how we conduct business. We are proud to have been part of this dynamic publication.
