The New Social Covenant project of the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council on Values aims to create global and local partnerships between business, government and civil society that are based on three core values: promoting the common good, human dignity and stewardship of the planet.

"The World Economic Forum's mission statement is: 'Committed to improving the state of the world'. The New Social Covenant, which was created by the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council on Values, is one way of fulfilling this mission: to remind all the stakeholders in business, government and civil society to base their decisions on values that serve human dignity, environmental stewardship and the common good."

Klaus Schwab, Chairman and Founder of the World Economic Forum
