The United Nations Global Compact is an initiative for businesses committed to aligning their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption.
Because our business strives for high labor standards and environmental responsibility, we have been taking actions relating to the Global Compact’s principles for some time. Our priorities align naturally with theirs. We signed the Global Compact in 2010 as a formal recognition of our commitment to report on our operations and strategies in relation to these principles.
You can read about how we performed against each of the Global Compact's principles in our Corporate Responsibility Report 2010.
