LRN Issues Communication on Progress to The United Nations Global Compact

February 24, 2017 LRN Corporation

The UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, is a call to companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals. LRN, which joined the UNCG in 2010, has released its Communication on Progress, which details actions during 2016 to further LRN’s advancement in these areas.

“LRN was inspired to join the UNGC because we recognized the clear ways in which our vision and mission were reflective of its principles,” says LRN CEO Dov Seidman. “Over the last six years, we have nurtured a relationship that allows us to be unified in our support of sustainable companies that create greater prosperity for all.”

“In geopolitical and global business terms,” he adds, “I understand why some may reflect on 2016 with pessimism and concern. The world is struggling to regain equilibrium from a chasm of trust and lack of faith in our systems, institutions, and leadership. We’re facing greater uncertainty, global unrest, resentment, and fear. Capitalism itself is undergoing deep examinations. Leaders and the organizations they are responsible for are struggling to keep pace. But, as we all know, leadership is about trendlines, not headlines. And the trendlines, I believe, are pointing in the right direction, and leave me with great optimism about our ability to achieve the goals of the Compact.
