Why Corporates Should Adopt UNGC Principles for CSR

June 3, 2019 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


The UNGC has clearly been an important international initiative for the global adoption of sustainable business practices and, arguably, a proof-point that commitment to clear and achievable objectives works. According to the UN Global Compact Performance Report by Ecovadis, organisations that have committed to the UNGC’s 10 principles perform significantly better on sustainability measures. In fact, the UNGC participants score, on average, 12 points higher compared to non-participants. The report also clarifies that small- and medium-sized businesses (29-999 employees) demonstrate better performance than larger organisations and act faster when addressing critical sustainability issues.
