The United Nations Global Compact brings together businesses, organizations, UN agencies, the professional world and civil society around 10 universally accepted principles to build more stable and inclusive societies. A framework for voluntary commitment, an international reference, a platform for action and exchange, the Global Compact is the world's largest corporate social responsibility initiative, with more than 19,000 participants in 170 countries.
Valbiotis, through its membership, supports the 10 principles of the United Nations Global Compact concerning the respect for human rights, international labor standards, environmental protections and the fight against corruption.
With this new commitment, Valbiotis expresses its will to reinforce and integrate these principles in its long-term strategy, its culture, its daily operations, and to advance them in its area of influence. Valbiotis will also participate in projects advancing the broader development goals of the United Nations, in particular contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Valbiotis is already committed to SDG 3 "Good Health and Well-Being" and SDG 9 "Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure" by developing innovative plant-based active substances to prevent metabolic and cardiovascular diseases or to act on early pathological states.
During the first year of its Global Compact membership, Valbiotis is committed to initiating action on the following principles:
- Establishment of CSR governance, with the creation of a CSR steering committee reporting directly to the CEO of Valbiotis, the structuring of an ISO 26000-compliant approach and the raising of awareness among all its employees.
- Evaluation of the impact of its activities on the environment, and implementation of concrete actions to contribute to SDG 13 - Measures to combat climate change.
Sébastien Peltier, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directorscomments: "We are very proud to reinforce our commitment by joining the United Nations Global Compact, which marks a new step in the Company's growth and development beyond our public health mission focused on reducing the impact that metabolic and cardiovascular diseases can have on the millions of people at risk worldwide. It reflects the Company's ambition, in its new dimension, to integrate the strategy of Corporate Social Responsibility into our priority areas of action, the commitments and objectives that will drive us forward. We are structuring our CSR approach according to the ISO 26000 standard with the aim of eventually obtaining a label in order to continue our growth while effecting positive change for people and the planet.”
