QIMA, a leading provider of quality control and supply chain compliance solutions is pleased to announce their participation in the United Nations Global Compact initiative — a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices.
With this announcement, QIMA is proud to join thousands of other companies globally committed to taking responsible business action to create the world people want.
“At QIMA, our mission is to help our clients make products consumers can trust. A large part of that pertains to assessing the social and environmental footprint of consumer goods and food that end up on retail shelves; hence, it is only natural that we also commit to improving our own internal sustainability practices and live by the principles we help our clients enforce,” shares Sebastien Breteau, QIMA founder and CEO. “By communicating our commitment and best practices through UN Global compact’s principles, we are imposing on ourselves to be a positive contributor for a more sustainable global trade environment.”
The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 9,500 companies and 3,000 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and more than 70 Local Networks.
