We support the UN Global Compact
We have been a member of the German Global Compact Network (DGCN) since October 2020. The United Nations Global Compact is the world's largest and most important initiative for responsible corporate governance. Currently, more than 15,000 companies in more than 160 countries worldwide belong to the UN Global Compact. Of these, almost 600 are German companies - from DAX-listed corporations to medium-sized companies and small specialists.
By joining, WERIT has committed itself to aligning its corporate strategy, work processes and corporate culture with ten general principles. These international principles deal with human rights, labor standards, the environment and the prevention of corruption. As a signatory to the Global Compact, we are also called upon to promote the general goals of the United Nations, in particular the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are proud of our membership and the associated commitment to a sustainable future.
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR)
Awarded with „ecovadis - Bronze”!
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the ongoing commitment to act responsibly by integrating social and environmental concerns into business operations. CSR goes beyond simple compliance and addresses how companies manage their economic, social and environmental impacts, as well as how they relate to their stakeholders (e.g. employees, trading partners, government). At WERIT, we are proud to receive this award.
