BECHEM joins the Global Compact Initiative of the United Nations
Today, BECHEM is pleased to announce that we have joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative — a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices. With this announcement, BECHEM is proud to join thousands of other companies globally committed to taking responsible business action to create the world we all want.
The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 15,000 companies and 3,000 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and more than 70 Local Networks.
“In line with our commitment to these principles, BECHEM is proud to have joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative. As a company, we have a responsibility to work for a future worth living and to anchor sustainability strategically. We take this responsibility seriously and are proud that since March 2023 we have been a participant in the United Nations Global Compact. By participating, we set an example and commit to implementing The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact.” noted BECHEM CEO Christoph Hundertmark.
