Amann and the United Nations Global Compact
Amann has made a conscious decision to enter into the UN Global Compact. The German Global Compact Network describes the United Nations Global Compact as «the world’s largest and most important initiative for responsible corporate governance. Based on 10 universal principles and the Sustainable Development Goals, it pursues the vision of an inclusive and sustainable global economy for the benefit of all people, communities and markets – today and in the future».
Amann considers the ten principles of the UN Global Compact to be the basis for social and ecological economic activity worldwide. Based on the UN Global Compact, AMANN has now published its first Sustainability Report. The report demonstrates, which measures Amann is already taking for people and the environment and how the company is positioning itself for the future in terms of sustainability.
