The United Nations Global Compact is the world’s leading voluntary corporate citizenship initiative. It is a call to companies everywhere to voluntarily align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and to take actions in support of UN goals, including the Millennium Development Goals. Endorsed by chief executives, the UN Global Compact is a leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible corporate policies and practices. Launched in 2000, since then over 18.000 businesses originating from 160 countries throughout the world have participated, giving life to a new reality of global collaboration.
Nowadays, the United Nations Global Compact is the largest corporate responsibility initiative in the world.
VERONA LAMIERE SPA has been participating in this important initiative since 2009.
As a participant, a company makes a commitment:
- to set in motion changes to business operations so that the Global Compact and its ten principles become part of strategy, culture and day-to-day operations;
- to publicly advocate the Global Compact and its principles via available communications channels;
- to communicate annually and publicly on progress made in implementing the Global Compact principles.
