To help with the adoption of the Principles internationally, we provide key resources in French, Japanese, Mandarin, Portuguese and Spanish and in other languages where possible.

We identified these five priority languages based on the number of signatories these language cover, and the extent to which English is spoken there.

Although most of our content is produced in English, approximately half of our 3,000+ signatories are based in non-native English-speaking countries – a figure we expect to grow as our mission continues to take root around the world.
