Corporate responsibility under the United Nations Global Compact

UN global compact

 

From December 18 of 2014, our company has received confirmation of our membership in the world’s largest initiative on corporate responsibility – UN’s Global Compact, with more than 8,000 companies joining from 163 different countries, including 185 companies from Ukraine. We became part of an active global network, oriented towards practical actions and offers a broad spectrum of various possibilities for active participation – from constructive dialogue on the critically important issues of educational events, to formation of partnerships in order to achieve sustainable development and economic prosperity.
 
Global Compact is a global initiative for corporate responsibility, built on 10 key principles divided into 4 directions:

  • Human rights
  • Labor relations
  • Environmental protection
  • Anti-corruption

Ten principles of the Global Agreement

Principle 1. Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights.

Principle 2. Businesses should 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.
