SIWI joins UN’s corporate sustainability initiative
“As a member of UN Global Compact Network Sweden, SIWI aim to bring to the discussion our expertise about the challenges and opportunities with water in value chains, influencing the agenda so that no opportunity is missed in our joint effort towards a just and sustainable future. We acknowledge that member companies are important actors in this efforts, and we want them to being able to make informed decisions.”
The Network rests on ten principles that all members must subscribe to. These have been derived from international agreements and declarations, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development. The idea is that responsible businesses enact the same values and principles wherever they have a presence, and know that good practices in one area do not offset harm in another. By incorporating these principles into strategies, policies and procedures, companies are not only upholding their basic responsibilities to people and planet, but also setting the stage for long-term success.
