UN Global Compact

 

 

As a participant of the United Nations Global Compact, we are committed to responsible corporate governance. The voluntary initiative, in which companies have committed themselves since 1999 in a pact with the United Nations to promote social and environmental responsibility in the context of globalization, is present in 161 countries and encourages companies to develop sustainable solutions in economic, social and environmental terms. We are proud to be part of this worldwide initiative of more than 12000 companies and orient our entrepreneurial activities to the 10 principles of the Global Compact, which include the areas of human rights, labor standards, environment and anti-corruption. A responsible task that we are happy to take.

By participating in the Global Compact, we have made it our goal to make an active contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals formulated by the United Nations.
