AdP as a signatory of the Global Compact


undefined

Within the framework of its sustainability policy and corporate responsibility, in 2010 AdP became a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), an initiative launched by the United Nations with the objective of aligning corporate strategies and business policies  and civil society around ten universal principles and that has since integrated over ten thousand companies all around the world.

In becoming a UNGC participant, AdP took on the commitment for ensuring its business strategies and policies fully respect the ten principles consecrated by the United Nations in this Global Pact that spans Human and Labour Rights, Environmental Protection and Anticorruption Mechanisms.

While participation is totally voluntary, the Global Compact objective is to ensure signatory organisations render these ten principles a daily reality and accepting the obligation to annually notify the United Nations, through a Communication on Progress report, what has been undertaken to achieve these principles.
