|The United Nations Global Compact
We have been a staunch supporter of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) since 2012 and strive to adhere to each of the Ten Principles, reaffirming our commitment to respect labour standards and human rights, to operate in an environmentally responsible manner and to maintain zero tolerance towards corruption.
The UNGC is an international initiative outlining the Ten Principles for responsible business in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. The principles are derived from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation (ILO)’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.
We are committed to eliminate any instances of forced labour, child labour or any forms of human trafficking.

While supporting long-term value creation, the application of the six Principles help to align investors with the UN initiative Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
