Brenntag, the global market leader in chemical distribution, has joined UN Global Compact, a voluntary initiative set up to promote sustainable development and social responsibility. As well as being the first chemical distributor to join the UN Global Compact, Brenntag uses this step to further expand its sustainability strategy at the same time.
Steven Holland, CEO of the Brenntag Group: “Safety, responsibility and sustainability are central factors in Brenntag’s daily practice. This being the case, it is a logical step for us to join the UN Global Compact and to incorporate the initiative’s ten principles as a fixed part of our company strategy and everyday work.”
The United Nations Global Compact is a strategic initiative for companies that undertake to align their business activities and strategies with ten universally recognized principles in the areas of human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and the fight against corruption. With more than 12,000 participants from over 145 countries, it is the world’s largest joint initiative of socially committed companies and other stakeholders.
