IMPA joins the United Nations Global Compact

A new partnership with the UN Global Compact sees IMPA making its commitment to sustainable and socially-responsible policies official.

IMPA is delighted to announce that on the 3rd of July 2018, the Association became a registered participant of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate responsibility initiative, with nearly 12,000 participating companies from 140 countries. Through this partnership, our Association has formalised its support for the Global Compact’s principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

IMPA has always been working diligently to give concrete meaning to this principle-based approach and to facilitate the implementation of these principles, mainly through its innovative IMPA ACT Responsible Supply Chain Management System. This is what Stephen Alexander, COO of IMPA, had to say:  

“We have been promoting UN’s Global Compact principles through our work for a while now and we are pleased that we now have an open and official partnership with this wonderful initiative. It will pave the way to sharing knowledge with our UNGC Local Network and we are confident that, as a result, our CSR initiative for the global marine procurement industry will grow stronger.”  

We, at IMPA, welcome this partnership, and are looking forward to what is to come!
