These ten principles are in the areas of human rights human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and taking action to support 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 3,800 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries and more than 69 Local Networks.
François Guyeux, Chief People Officer at Rimes comments, “We are incredibly proud to be joining the world’s largest sustainability network and are fully committed to operating in line with their ten pillars of success. ESG is our north star, and we are taking calculated action with a comprehensive strategy underpinned by clear medium- and long-term science-based targets. We are making ESG core to who we are as a business and how we serve our employees, clients, and communities. Joining UNGC enables us to benefit from a wealth of training and documentation. Still, most importantly, it ensures that we are measuring ourselves against a recognized industry standard and not just jumping on the ESG bandwagon.”
