United Nations Global Compact
Atlantica is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative with more than 12,000 signatories in over 160 countries. The UNGC is an initiative which encourages companies and organizations worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially-responsible policies. The participation in the UN Global Compact is voluntary and those entities who sign it pledge to uphold and disseminate the principles and report on their progress once they apply them in their management. By joining the UNGC, business, as a primary driver of globalization, can help ensure that markets, commerce, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere.
As part of its commitment with sustainability, Atlantica has formally adopted the UN Global Compact ten basic principles in the fields of human rights, labour, environment and anticorruption. We are determined to make the UN Global Compact and its principles an integral part of the strategy, culture and day-to-day operations of the Company.
