The Global Compact is a voluntary initiative that calls for companies to make commitments to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in four areas: human rights, labor standards, environment and anti-corruption. Due to the number of participants-thousands in over 100 countries, the Global Compact is the world's largest corporate citizenship. It is a framework for action aimed at building the social legitimacy of business and markets.
Since 2008, we present our Communication in Progress (COP). You can currently access this information here:

This shows that we are aligned to work based on respect for human rights, labor standards, environment and anti-corruption. Companies that adhere to the Global Compact share the conviction that business practices based on universal principles contribute to building a more stable, equitable and inclusive global market that promote more prosperous societies.
