Dear Sir/Madam,

On June 5th, year 2002, Global Synergetic Foundation joined the UN’s Global Compact, and in doing so expressed its steadfast commitment to the Ten Principles that the Compact puts forth. Compliance with these principles is without doubt one of the cornerstones for the democratic and cohesive existence of both companies and society as a whole.

Much of activities are on the same path. We are committed to doing everything we can, in the interests of shareholders, clients, employees and the communities in which we do business. Through Topfield Ventures, the Corporate Managing arm of the  Global Synergetic, has as its primary objective  to serve as our clients' most trusted external adviser and service providers on the greatest challenges facing senior management and Governing bodies. We work with a range of organizations – Indian non-profits, companies,  and emerging  multinational  entities. We serve  them on a variety  of strategic, operational, and organizational issues and help them become world-class companies.We continue to pursue our dynamic management of environmental issues, including the implementation of our climate change strategy. In addition, we have heightened our focus on the client-related aspects of climate change. We remain strongly committed to investing in our people and we continue programs and processes across the firm.

We continue to work at the implementation of important projects linked to our Statement on Human Rights, in particular pertaining to the issue of responsible supply chain management and to the development of sensitive industry guidelines. We remain firmly committed to our effective risk-based approach to anti-money laundering – a key responsibility for any global firm – and to promoting the development and implementation of anti-money laundering and anti-corruption standards for the financial industry as a whole. Our continued dedication to key corporate responsibility activities demonstrates that we have not lost sight of areas of relevance beyond the fundamental consulting and service sphere. Equally, we have not lost sight of the long-term, even while, at present, our main efforts are focused on the short-term, i.e. the resolution of the crisis and the restoration of solid foundations for a successful future.

Focused fully on consultancy, training, and research activities, supporting processes of institutional development or change, tailored to the specific sector, or the respective organization. Conventional ideas about organizational engineering are being supplemented by broader notions on promoting learning, empowerment, and social capital. The approach towards institutional development puts emphasis on effective and sustainable self management, individual creativity, principles of gender equity, local knowledge and participation of stakeholders which gives us sufficient grounding to work with the UNGC Ten Principles. We embrace, support and enact the 10 principles within our “spheres of influence”.

Circle I-work place within our controlling organization  where we have  the greatest control in affecting ESG (environmental, social and governance) performance.Circle II-our interactive space with member professionals and clients,Circle III-our company’s community interaction, social investment and philanthropy activities as performed through our non-profit units,Shri Jagdish Foundation and Global Synergetic Institute. The former focuses on World Peace Issues while the latter on Issues of Social Justice, welfare and Development. Circle IV-The fact is that the Circles I,III & IV overlap cohesively in Global Synergetic Organization controlled by the Foundation and focus ,as our Corporate Social Responsibility,(CSR),on public policy dialogue and advocacy 

In the year 2012-2013, we are able now to disseminate the Ten Principles but to get it implemented in a networked manner.We became UN Caring for Climate Signatories in the year 2008.   Our goal with the Climate Manifesto is to give a voice to the strong public opinion that exists with respect to the climate issue, but also to spark a debate. Foundation has been highly adaptive and has been undergoing drastic transformation during the intervening period according to the changing socioeconomic and political world order. We are to give now equal thrust to promotion of World View and Eternal Wisdom for world peace and harmony and Climate and Environment. 

In the Year 2012-13, GSF initiated to enter "International Media" with all the Ten Principles in mind, motivated by what Thomas Sowell said, "If people in the media can not decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly". We founded GSF Network  and expanded to Europe for the purpose. 

The  year 2012-13 has been our year of expansion and  unification beneath diversity. In the process,  GSF announced the formation of the GSF Group Executive Council (GSFGEC) on March 22, 2013 in Cyprus. The GSFGEC, under the Chairman of GSF,  will comprise executives of GSF  Corporation  and will provide strategic and operational support to the Chairman of GSF. The GSFGEC, under the aegis of the GSF board, will now assume responsibility for all the roles earlier performed by the Group Companies separately, and to operate through the Group Executive Office (GEO).The mandate of the GEC is to own and drive the delivery of the core purpose of GSF, which is long term value creation for all stakeholders. The agenda of the GSFGEC includes, inter alia, return on investment with a long term perspective; support for and shaping of the agenda for philanthropy; preserving and enhancing the reputation of the 'Global Synergetic' name; defining and driving a  'Global Synergetic' way of working for group companies; and playing a proactive role so that the group fulfils its responsibility as a global corporate citizen. The GSFGEC will work closely with and partner the boards, CEOs and senior management of various GSF Group companies.

In India, GSFGEC stepped to unify the  management of all its different scattered units under one Trust, created at New Delhi, on the day of the Festival f Lights, "Deepawali" which assimilated all the sub-units like Global Synergetic Institute (established in 1992),Global Synergetic Organization,(established in 2002) etc under one umbrella, named "Global Synergetic". 

 It is therefore, with particular pride that I present our Seventh “Communication on Progress”, which describes how our signature of the Global Compact has paved the way to tangible, long-term actions both within our Organization and on behalf of our members.

Regards and  best wishes

Yours
