The United Nations Global Compact has confirmed Zühlke as new participant in the world’s leading corporate citizenship initiative. Launched in 2000 it is the most important initiative for sustainable and responsible corporate governance. It is a call to companies to align their strategies and operations with ten universal principles related to human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals and the implementation of the United Nation’s SDGs.
“For Zühlke, participating in the UN Global Compact is a strong expression of our values and our commitment to using innovation and technology as a positive force of change for business and society”, says Zühlke Group CEO Fabrizio Ferrandina. “We anchor the principles of the UN Global Compact within our strategies, policies and operations and support the Sustainable Development Goals. Given the huge challenges of our time, particularly related to climate and health, companies must do their part.”
