Oberkirch, June 14, 2022 – PWO AG supports the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest sustainability initiative, in which more than 16,000 companies and organizations from civil society and the political and scientific arenas in more than 160 countries participate. We are thereby underpinning our self-image as a force for good in society.
On the basis of its 10 Principles and the Sustainable Development Goals, the UN Global Compact’s vision is for a more inclusive and sustainable economy for the benefit of all people, communities and markets, now and in the future.
In declaring our accession, we have undertaken to integrate the Global Compact and its principles in the area of human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and combating corruption into our business strategy, our corporate culture and our day-to-day activities. We will participate in cooperation projects that promote the general goals of the United Nations, including in particular the Sustainable Development Goals. Moreover, we will clearly communicate our commitment to our stakeholders and the public at large.
Carlo Lazzarini, PWO’s CEO, said: “We have announced our intention to join renowned international sustainability organizations and initiatives. After joining the Science Based Targets Initiative a few weeks ago, today is the turn of the UN Global Compact. Endorsing it is a central component of our sustainability strategy in the 3 dimensions of the environment, society and governance. We are thereby again stepping up our contributions towards shaping future mobility and to improving the quality of living for people all over the world.”
