Initiatives 2015-2020 via Global Partnerships for Development using collaborative arts and technology to address the Post- 2015 Sustainable Development Agenda and Decade of Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) throughout the Diaspora and the Earth, in compliance with the African Union Convention on Preventing and Combating Corruption as to African Union 6th Region and Agenda 2063. Social Entrepreneurship We relentlessly pursue opportunities to serve this mission, while continuously adapting and learning. We draw upon appropriate thinking in both the business and nonprofit worlds and operate in all kinds of organizations: large and small; new and old; religious and secular; nonprofit, for-profit, and hybrid, locally, nationally and globally. Neighborhood Empowerment and Economic Development Economic development generally refers to the sustained, concerted actions of policy makers and communities that promote the standard of living and economic health of a specific area. Such actions can involve multiple areas including development of human capital, critical infrastructure, regional competitiveness, environmental sustainability, social inclusion, health, safety, literacy, and other initiatives. STREAAM Education Initiatives STEM education is an acronym for the fields of study in the categories of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. “R” represents “rivers” and the whole acronym reflects “Water” as the basic necessity for all life on Earth. We consider Art and Architecture to be core components in schooling from kindergarten through college to improve competitiveness in technology development. It has implications for workforce development, national security concerns and immigration policy and our commitment to “regenerative” development solutions. Youth, Women, At-Risk and Unmet Needs Empowerment Programs Empowerment refers to increasing the spiritual, political, social, educational, and/or economic strength of individuals and communities. Civic Engagement, Corporate Social Responsibility and Community Resiliency Civic engagement is a means of working together to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of skills, knowledge, values, and motivation in order to make that difference.

These expelled companies represent 10 percent of the 3,760 participants due to submit a Communication on Progress (COP) within the second half of 2014. A total of 197 companies achieved the GC Advanced level, reflecting an increased commitment to transparency and accountability. The number of companies joining the UN Global Compact continues to exceed the number of expulsions, with 729 companies from around the world joining the initiative from July through December 2014. Business participants in the Global Compact commit to make the ten principles part of their business strategies and day-to-day operations. As an integral part of their commitment, companies must issue an annual COP, a public disclosure to stakeholders (investors, consumers, civil society, Governments) on progress made in implementing the ten principles, and in supporting broader UN goals and issues. Companies that fail to submit a COP for two consecutive years have not fulfilled their commitment to the Global Compact and face expulsion from the initiative. A Communication on Engagement (COE) policy, introduced in October 2013, also requires non- business participants to disclose specific activities in support of the initiative to stakeholders every two years, as well as results. Non-business participants that fail to submit a COE every two years will also face expulsion from the initiative as of 31 October, 2015. The Global Compact offers customized and direct support to participants through its Relationship Management and Reporting teams, as well as through Local Networks in 86 countries. Companies of all types and in all regions are encouraged to take advantage of this valuable support to maximize their participation in the initiative. The Global Compact welcomes the international community to utilize this information to encourage more companies and other organizations to make a serious and enduring commitment to universal sustainability principles.

They perform increasingly important roles in rooting the Global Compact within different national, cultural and language contexts, and also in helping to manage the organizational consequences of the Global Compact’s rapid expansion. Their role is to facilitate the progress of companies (both local firms and subsidiaries of foreign corporations) engaged in the Global Compact with respect to implementation of the ten principles, while also creating opportunities for multi-stakeholder engagement and collective action. Furthermore, networks deepen the learning experience of all participants through their own activities and events and promote action in support of broader UN goals.

Caring for Climate (C4C) is a joint initiative between the United Nations Global Compact (UN Global Compact), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) aimed at advancing the role of business in climate change in five key areas: 1. Reduce emissions, set targets, and report annual performance 2. Devise a business strategy to approach climate risks and opportunities 3. Engage with policymakers to encourage scaled up climate action 4. Work collaboratively with other enterprises to tackle climate change 5. Become a climate-friendly business champion with stakeholders In particular, we commit to work collaboratively with other enterprises both nationally and sectorally, and along our value-chains, to set standards and take joint initiatives aimed at reducing climate risks, assisting with adaptation to climate change and enhancing climate- related opportunities. We further commit to work collaboratively on joint initiatives between public and private sectors and through them achieve a comprehensive understanding of how both public and private sectors can best play a pro-active and leading role in meeting the climate challenge in an effective way through global partnerships for development. We invite the UN Global Compact to promote the public disclosure of actions taken by the signatories to the Caring for Climate Statement and, in cooperation with UNEP, communicate on this on a regular basis. Sincerely yours, Andrew Williams, Jr. President
