Why should you incorporate sustainability goals and sustainable initiatives in your business?
The Global Compact is a UN initiative that leads business sustainability in the world. A call to companies and organizations to align their strategies and operations with the Ten Universal Principles on human rights, labor standards, the environment and the fight against corruption. With the UN mandate to promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the business sector.
This initiative was launched more than 20 years ago when it was announced by Kofi Annan at the World Economic Forum at its 1999 annual meeting. It currently has over 70 local networks around the world, including the Spanish one, which is , since its creation, one of the first national platforms of the Global Compact and the local network with the largest number of adhered entities, almost 2,000 with more than 800 partners and an advanced management model and organizational structure.
The ultimate goal of the commitment is to create a global movement of all companies to create a sustainable world in which there is room for all human beings. In short, this pact is, in its essence, a network of companies that negotiate in a responsible and committed way with society. At UHY Fay & Co we show our support in this matter by being one of the companies adhering to the Global Compact.
