Weightmans joins United Nations Global Compact Initiative

The firm joins thousands of organisations committed to responsible business

This week, Weightmans joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative — a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices.

With this announcement, Weightmans is proud to join thousands of other companies globally committed to taking responsible business action to create the world we all want.

The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Abhay Srivastava, Environmental, Social & Governance Manager at Weightmans said:

"We are proud to join the global movement of socially & environmentally conscious organisations. By joining United Nations Global Compact initiative, we commit to integrate the principles-based approach in our operating model and take shared responsibility for achieving a better world."

Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 15,000 companies and 3,800 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and more than 69 Local Networks.
