Our Group signed up to the Global Compact, the greates initiative of world corporate citizenship, through which the United Nation aims to promote a sustainable global economy, encouraging companies to conduct their business responsibly.
Founded in 1999, the Global Compact is today an international network made up of companies, governments, institutions and organisations that aims to share, disseminate and support its Ten Principles and, more generally, to promote the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
THE TEN PRINCIPLES OF THE UN GLOBAL COMPACT REQUIRE THAT BUSINESSES:
1. Support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights in their respective spheres of influence.
2. Make sure that they are not complicit, even indirectly, in human rights abuses.
3. Uphold workers’ freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining.
4. Eliminate all forms of forced and compulsory labour.
5. Support the effective abolition of child labour.
6. Support the elimination of any form of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
7. Support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges.
8. Undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility.
9. Encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
10. Work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
The ten universal principles reflects the importance of an ethical management of topics such as human rights,labour practices, environment and anti-corruption. The respect of these principles is at the base of our culture, our values and our day by day activities. By signing up to these principles, we want to give a tangible signal of our commitment to promoting an increasingly responsible, sustainable and inclusive business model.
The Group will report annually on the progress made with respect to the Ten Principles in the Communication on Progress (COP) document.
We joined the Women Empowerment Principles (WEPs) to advance gender equality
