UNITED NATIONS GLOBAL COMPACT

Global Compact is an initiative of the United Nations launched in 2000 that defines guideline directives for businesses that opt to contribute to sustainable development. EDPR has become signatory of this initiative and is committed to put these principles into practice, informing society of the progress it has achieved.

In addition, the company has a Code of Ethics that contains specific clauses on the respect for human rights. In compliance with the Code, EDPR expresses its total opposition to forced or compulsory labor and recognises that human rights should be considered fundamental and universal, based on conventions, treaties and international initiatives like the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labor Organisation and the Global Compact. EDPR’S Procurement Manual also includes a chapter that guides each Purchasing Department to put these principles into practice, so, when procuring and contracting goods and services, EDPR appeals to all reasonable endeavours so that selected suppliers accept to comply with the UN Global Compact’s ten principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.
