The 10 Principles of the Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals We place great importance on ensuring that our business and our key priorities are aligned with the 10 principles set out in the UN Global Compact and with the Sustainable Development Goals. As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (in the Global Compact Advanced reporting category), the Group supports the Global Compact’s commitments in relation to human rights, international labour standards, the environment and anti-corruption. As part of the events marking the United Nations’ 75th anniversary and the 20th anniversary of its Global Compact, the Group responded to the call to action launched by the organisation and joined its “Uniting Business for a Better World” pledge, along with more than 1,200 other companies worldwide, to promote peace, justice, strong institutions, adherence to the Global Compact’s 10 principles and the achievement of the SDGs. In addition to our seven commitments, we have defined three priorities for 2022 as part of our environmental, social and governance (ESG) roadmap. The related policies and their main results are presented in the corresponding sections of this Universal Registration Document. A dedicated governance structure coordinates implementation of policy and associated improvement plans.
