ANZ has reaffirmed support for the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). The UNGC is the world’s largest voluntary reporting initiative, with more than 12,000 signatories across 145 countries.
On becoming a signatory to the UNGC, businesses commit to aligning their operations and strategies with 10 ‘universally accepted principles’ in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
We recently submitted our annual Communication on Progress report, our fourth such report since becoming a signatory to the UNGC in 2010. The report outlines the policies and processes we have in place in support of the UNGC’s 10 principles, as well as progress we have made over the past year to strengthen our approach to responsible business practices, particularly in relation to respecting human rights.
