CELSA Group joins the United Nations Global Compact
- This adhesion allows CELSA Group to take a further step towards sustainable development
Launched in 2000, the United Nations Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. There are currently more than 12,000 member companies in more than 150 countries and it has more than 70 local networks.
Signing the Global Compact means that CELSA Group is committed to aligning its operations with Ten Universally Accepted Principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, environment and anti-corruption, and to adopt measures in support of the United Nations objectives currently embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals.
This pact is not a new path for us, as the CELSA Group has always been committed to conducting and managing its business in an ethical, environmentally friendly and socially responsible manner. Thanks to this alliance, we reinforce our commitment to these principles and allows us to face the future with greater ambition.
According to Francesc Rubiralta, President of CELSA Group, “CELSA Group, as the leading industrial recycler in Spain, wants to transfer its commitment to the United Nations Global Compact through the implementation of its 10 principles, joining thousands of companies worldwide, and committing to responsible business actions to try to build a better world”.
The UN Global Compact has its main constituency in Europe, with the largest total number of participants and more than 30 local networks. This indicates the extraordinary level of commitment of our society.
