Greenstone recently submitted its annual Communication on Progress (COP) to the UN Global Compact. Through this COP report, Greenstone reaffirms its commitment to making the UN Global Compact and its principles part of the strategy, culture and day-to-day operations of its company.
At Greenstone, we understand that we play a role in helping organisations to meet many of the UN’s goals and objectives, including the ten principles of the UN Global Compact (UNGC). Greenstone has been a participant of the UN Global Compact since 2013 and actively uses and promotes the ten principles and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a standard for its clients.
Through our award-winning sustainability software solutions and supporting services, we partner with our clients on their reporting journeys and are dedicated to improving the transparency of corporate reporting in the 4 key areas – human rights, labour, environment and anti-bribery and corruption.
Since our last submission, Greenstone has become a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) and a supporter of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). In 2019 we also committed to setting a Science-Based Target (SBT), demonstrating our dedication to reducing our carbon footprint. This year we are also taking part in the United Nations Global Compact’s Young Sustainable Development Goal Innovators Programme (YSIP) to develop innovative solutions to help both Greenstone and our clients meet their SDG targets.
