National Joins United Nations Global Compact Initiative
Today, National 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, National 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.
Misty Gregarek, National President and COO shared, “National’s commitment to a better world for today and tomorrow is at the core of our organizational principles so the alignment with the UN Global Compact Initiative is very natural for us. We believe it’s the collective responsibility of the business community to lead the way for future generations to thrive.”
