GPM and UN Global Compact Local Networks; collaboration for a better world

The UN Post-2015 Business Engagement Architecture outlines platforms for action and partnership which can help optimize and scale up corporate sustainability efforts as well as contribute to corporate participation in the broader multi-stakeholder efforts to achieve UN goals. These supporting elements include various forums and platforms that enable companies and other stakeholders to work together – by geography, sector and/or issue. Such initiatives are key to facilitating the type of partnerships and collective action without which systemic challenges cannot be overcome. (UNGC,2013)

As a key supporter of the UN Global Compact and advocate for adoption of the ten principles in project, program, and portfolio management, we believe strongly in collaboration.  On September 30th, we had the opportunity to work with SumarSe, the UN Global compact local network for Panama, on PSM3, our organizational sustainability assessment model.

The SumarSe team led by Teresa Moll de Alba along with myself, our VP of Strategy Peter Milsom (CA), new VP of Research Michael Young (AU), CIS Regional Director Oxana Klimenko (RU) and Latin America Deputy Director Blas Ramos (PA) discussed the climate for sustainability and CSR in Panama and the positive local impact that the collaboration between our two organizations will could and will have.

After successfully working through the PSM3 Pre-Assessment, we are now working on ways to grow the model together and support sustainable development (and change delivery) in Panama.
