Aligning with the UNGC

A proud signatory of the UN Global Compact since 2019

AtlasTrend (Elevate Super's promoter) is a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). We support the Ten Principles of the UNGC in the areas of Human Rights, Labour, Environment and Anti-Corruption.

At a time when we face significant health and economic challenges globally, best practice in corporate responsibility and progress towards sustainability is more important than ever - and greater progress can be achieved if we all work together.

We continually improve the integration of the Global Compact and its principles into our business strategy, culture and daily operations.

We support public accountability and transparency, and commit to sharing this information with our stakeholders and the general public.

About the United Nations Global Compact

The United Nations Global Compact is an organisation that aims to mobilise a global movement of companies and stakeholders who are committed to sustainability.

As a special initiative of the UN Secretary-General, the United Nations Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with ten universal principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals.

With more than 12,000 companies and 3,000 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and 69 Local Networks, it is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world.

What is the UNGC Communication on Progress?

The UNGC requires participating companies to produce a Communication on Progress (COP), a public, annual report which demonstrates their corporate sustainability through embedding the Global Compact’s Ten Principles into their business.
