The Shift – UNGC

The Shift is the Belgian meeting point for sustainability. As the national contact point for the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, UN Global Compact and CSR Europe, The Shift brings together over 350 entities ranging from private companies, NGOs, academic institutions, governmental bodies and other key actors in society.

Together with their members and partner organisations, The Shift aims to develop innovative solutions to the biggest challenges faced by our planet, people and future prosperity.

Their guiding principles are the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In order to facilitate the implementation of the SDGs, we want to ensure for our members a smooth interaction between the international and local sustainability agenda as the Global Compact Network Belgium (GCNB).
We committed ourselves to the 10 principles on human rights of the UN Global Compact.
