UN Global Compact

Indutrade has signed the UN's Global Compact sustainability initiative. In doing so Indutrade has committed itself to working with the Global Compact's ten principles for sustainable development in the four areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

With more than 9,500 companies as signatories based in more than 160 countries, the UN Global Compact is the world's largest strategic sustainability initiative for companies. The initiative was started 1999 and urges companies to take global responsibility and adapt their strategies and operations to the ten principles.

The foundation of the principles

The principles are derived from the UN's Declaration of Human Rights, the ILO's Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the UN Convention Against Corruption.

Yearly reporting

Once a year Indutrade issues a Communication on Progress (CoP) that details how we are conducting our operations in accordance with the 10 principles and outlines our responsibility. The Communication on Progress is published on the UN Global Compact's website, available to the general public.
