access2innovation signs UN Global compact

on .

UN Global Compact is the world’s largest sustainability initiative – a call to companies around the world to align their strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption and to take action to advance societal goals.

Setting off in the international declarations of human rights, rights at work, environment and development declarations and conventions against corruption, the UN Global Compact has set up ten CSR principles for companies:

Human Rights

Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and

Principle 2: make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.


Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;

Principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;

Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labour; and

Principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.


Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;

Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and

Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.


Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.

All access2innovation association members are obliged to follow the Global Compact principles.
