Mary Robinson, President of Realizing Rights, Jeffrey Kindler, Vice Chairman of Pfizer, and Liu Yong-hao, Chairman and CEO of New Hope Group, share their thoughts on how the Global Compact¹s ten principles can be used to contribute to sustainable development, the realization of human rights, and poverty alleviation, in addition to their value in further integrating Chinese enterprise into the global economy. Other articles in the Compact Quarterly include an interview with Anders Dahlvig, President and CEO of Ikea Group, on "Balancing Risks and Opportunities in Asia", "Responsible Competitiveness: Linking Corporate Responsibility to National Economic Growth" by Simon Zadek, Chief Executive of AccountAbility, and a case study on the public-private partnership "Women's Health Initiative in India", among many others.
