TAPAUS is a member of the UN Global Compact
The UN Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability
initiative and a global challenge to companies and organizations. Here
at TAPAUS, sustainability is one of our most important strategic
development areas. Our goal is to integrate sustainability into our
business, our corporate strategy and our everyday work.
We wanted to become a member of the UN Global Compact because it
provides us with a sustainability framework with goals and principles
that are recognized all over the world. It allows us to be part of an
extensive global network and gives us access to tools, a digital
learning platform and support as we continue to develop the
sustainability of our own business.
As a member of the UN Global Compact, we’re committed to upholding
the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact in the areas of human
rights, employee and workplace wellbeing, the environment and anti-
corruption. Every year we report to the UN Communication on
Progress about our progress in implementing these Ten Principles
into our own business. You can follow our main focus areas on the
Global Compact website.
We’re committed to working to make the world a better place
according to the principles defined by the UN. And now we have the
community, tools, metrics and goals to do that.
