We are pleased to announce that we have joined the United Nations Global Compact and the UN Global Compact Network UK - a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible business practices. With this announcement, we are proud to join thousands of other companies globally and in the UK, committed to taking responsible business action to create the world we all want.
The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 12,000 companies and 3,500 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and 69 Local Networks. We encourage you to visit the UN Global Compact Network UK website to learn more about their work-streams. To learn more about our latest sustainability work, visit their website here.
