The UNGC supports companies to do business responsibly by adhering to ten principles that cover human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption. It also encourages companies to participate in advancing broader societal goals – such as those defined in the UN SDGs – with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation. We are committed and express our intent to implementing the ten principles of the Global Compact.

The ten principles are a part of our company’s policy, strategy and Code of Conduct, culture and day-to-day operations. We are also engaging in collaborative projects which advance the broader development goals of the United Nations.

We are shaping a sustainable future, accelerating our sustainability efforts, and scaling up impacts around the world for long-term business success and to make a difference in society. Details on how we support and enact the principles are included in the relevant section in our Sustainability Report and website.

We are proud to be a signatory and supporter of the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) and UN Global LGBTI Standards of Conduct. WEPs is a set of Principles established by UN Global Compact and UN Women, offering guidance to business on how to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community.

The UN Global LGBTI Standard supports the business community in tackling discrimination against lesbian, gay, bi, trans, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ+) people.

We are proud to promote gender equality, women's empowerment, and diversity and inclusion in the workplace, marketplace, and community. Our activities also have a significant impact on the UN SDGs. Together with the Global Compact Local Network, we promote the benefits of PET plastic waste separation and recycling, and the circular economy, as key tools for achieving the SDGs. We publish our SDGs Report annually to communicate our progress and achievements in this area.
