United Nations and PBwiki Partner to Provide Global Platform for Corporate Responsibility

 

San Bruno, CA, April 24, 2007 – San Bruno, CA, April 20, 2007 - PBwiki (http://pbwiki.com), the world's largest provider of wiki software and hosting, has entered into a globally significant partnership with the United Nations. PBwiki is working with the U.N. on their Global Compact (http://www.unglobalcompact.org/). 

 

The Global Compact is a collaborative initiative to create a worldwide corporate responsibility agreement. Stakeholders include:

 

  • 4,000 companies
  • 700 organizations
  • 100 countries

 

PBwiki is providing the means for collaboration (http://globalcompact.pbwiki.com/) of the disparate signatories of the Global Compact. Using PBwiki they are collaboratively authoring their guiding policy document, discussing issues of importance and nominating good corporate citizens and to create case studies for discussion. One important element of the Global Compact is the “Communication on Progress,” a fully searchable database of reports by Compact participants on how they are implementing transparency and accountability. This undertaking is one that is being conducted via a PBwiki. Over 2,000 reports have been reviewed and tagged on the wiki.

 

"We have been enjoying working with PBwiki a lot," said Juergen Nagler of the UN Global Compact Office. (waiting for a better quote) 

 

PBwiki Founder & CEO David Weekly has an ongoing relationship with the U.N.

 

 

PBwiki and the United Nations are a good fit. Dialogue and the creation of accord are ideals for the United Nations in general and the Global Compact in particular. The adoption of PBwiki by the United Nations also points up the larger uses for "social media" and its centrality to distance-based collaboration.
