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.

 

"Working with the United Nations is a furthering of what we already do," said PBwiki CEO David Weekly. "We faciliate collaboration between educators and students and between coworkers, between businesses and customers. This is just an extention of that mission into a global context."

 

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