Groupe Roullier commits to the United Nations Global Compact

The Groupe Roullier and its subsidiaries have officially joined the international movement of the United Nations Global Compact - a move that represents another step forward in our corporate responsibility strategy, and allows us to bolster our societal commitments on an international scale. Through participation in the Global Compact, we hope to both sustain our actions in favour of the Global Compact’s Ten Principles - which cover human rights, labour standards, the environment, and anti-corruption efforts - and contribute to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This means that, over the coming year, we will commit to placing the SDGs at the very heart of both our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy and our action plans, so we can redouble our efforts alongside our stakeholders for a more inclusive, sustainable world. Based on an analysis of our primary impact areas and possible areas of opportunity, we have identified 7 priority SDGs that will receive particular attention:



About the Global Compact:

Created in 2000 at the initiative of then-UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, the Global Compact is the largest non-binding international initiative in the field of sustainable development, uniting over 13,000 participants in 170 countries. The Global Compact provides a simple, universal, and voluntary commitment framework based on ten principles and an agenda that focuses on working together to eradicate extreme poverty, tackle climate change, and ensure a life of dignity for all. The Sustainable Development Goals form a universal blueprint to be implemented by 2030, so we can work together to build the future of our societies. We also work to support our local network, Global Compact France, which has been mandated by the UN to support both the enactment of this agenda and the French economic world’s adoption of the SDGs.
