Clariant, a specialty chemicals supplier based in Switzerland, announced that it has signed the declaration of membership of the UN Global Compact.
In doing so, Clariant undertakes, within its scope of influence, to advocate the safeguarding of human rights, create working conditions at minimum in line with the law, conserve the environment, and take measures against corruption.
The company recognizes and reaffirms that these principles mark out the future scope of action for its strategy, corporate culture, and daily work.
“With our accession to the UN Global Compact, we are demonstrating, once again, that sustainability is more than a buzzword to us.
We are already basing our corporate strategy on long term, sustainable criteria, in order to continuously enhance Clariant’s economic and ecological value creation,” says Clariant CEO Hariolf Kottmann.
