MILAN, Italy – Autogrill strengthens its commitment to sustainability and joins the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest initiative for sustainable development, based on ten universal principles relating to the respect for human rights, labor, environmental protection and the fight against corruption.
By joining the Global Compact, Autogrill commits to make the ten fundamental principles an integral part of its decision-making processes, development strategies and daily activities, to support the goals of the United Nations, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to report annually on its progress in implementing the ten principles.
“We are proud to join the UN Global Compact with so many other companies globally committed to the development of a sustainable global economy that guarantees a better future for all,” commented Autogrill CEO Gianmario Tondato Da Ruos. “With the aim of continuously strengthening our commitment to sustainability, we fully endorse the United Nation’s call for companies around the world to align their strategies with the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda”.
A participation that confirms Autogrill’s sustainability strategy based on three pillars: We nurture People, We offer sustainable Food Experiences, We care for the Planet, and reflects the company’s sustainability roadmap, which is setting important targets for the coming years.
Founded in 1999 by the United Nations, the Global Compact is a voluntary initiative aimed at promoting the values of long-term sustainability through policy actions, business practices, social and civic behavior, and encourages member companies and organizations to share, support and undertake sustainability-related actions in their own spheres of action.
Currently, at global level, more than 20.000 companies have joined the Global compact.
