UN GLobal Compact

  • Launched in July 2000, the UN Global Compact is both a policy platform and a practical framework for companies that are committed to sustainability and responsible business practices. As a leadership initiative endorsed by chief executives, it seeks to align business operations and strategies everywhere with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption:

    Human Rights

    • Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; 
    • Principle 2: Businesses must make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses. 



    • Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
    • Principle 4: Businesses should support the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labor;
    • Principle 5: Businesses should endorse the effective abolition of child labor;
    • Principle 6: Businesses should advocate the elimination of discrimination with respect to employment and occupation.



    • Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
    • Principle 8: Businesses must undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; 
    • Principle 9: Businesses should encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies. 



    • Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery. 

    The annual sustainability report functions as our Communication on Progress report to the UN on how our efforts in terms of sustainability have progressed.
