APG|SGA joins UN Global Compact
In May 2023 APG|SGA became a member of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest initiative for sustainability. The UN Global Compact calls on responsible companies to adhere to its 10 principles and implement the Sustainable Development Goals.
‘We’re making a statement with our values and our conception of sustainable business practices. We are totally committed to the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact, so signing up was a natural next step. Joining the UN Global Compact also gives us a global network which supports us in the implementation of our sustainability measures,’ explains CEO Markus Ehrle.
The 10 principles of the UN Global Compact address the key topics of human rights, fair working conditions, environmental protection and anti-corruption. By incorporating them into strategic and operational decisions, companies can fulfil their social responsibility.
The UN Global Compact offers members various tools and training modules as well as a global and local network made up of companies who exchange best practices, enter into partnerships and drive developments. As at September 2023, there were 23,800 members worldwide, including 319 from Switzerland.
