PENTA Communications, Inc. believes that positive change in the world begins at home with a strong community investment and continues on a global platform by influencing change through leadership. We are proud to have become a vested shareholder in the fabric of the Commonwealth, and are proud of our strong commitment as a member of the United Nations Global Compact.
The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative. As part of this compact, PENTA is has aligned our operations and strategies with the organization’s principles in four key areas of human rights, environment, anti-corruption and labor. By doing so, we are aligned as corporation that serves as a primary driver of globalization, and can help ensure that markets, commerce, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere.
“ The Global Compact has grown to become a critical platform for the United Nations to engage effectively with enlightened global business.” – UN Secretary-General Ban
Endorsed by chief executives worldwide, the Global Compact pursues two complementary objectives: (1) Mainstream the ten principles in business activities around the world, and (2) Catalyze actions in support of broader UN goals, including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). With these objectives in mind, the Global Compact has shaped an initiative that provides collaborative solutions to the most fundamental challenges facing both business and society. The initiative seeks to combine the best properties of the UN, such as moral authority and convening power, with the private sector’s solution-finding strengths, and the expertise and capacities of a range of key stakeholders.
We are delighted to present our most recent United Nations Global Compact Reports On Progress.
