UN Global Compact

Since 2015 Ramirent participates in the United Nations Global Compact; the largest voluntary corporate citizenship in the world. This entails a commitment to actively support the implementation of the United Nations’ fundamental principles in the areas of human rights, labour rights, environmental sustainability and anti-corruption.

The participation is a group level decision but applies to all units in the Ramirent Group. The Global Compact serves as a strategic frame work for a structured approach to social responsibility, taking the subsidiaries different starting points in terms of local conditions and experiences into consideration.

Internally, the progress is monitored via the local business planning processes and in internal audits. Externally, the progress is reported to the Global Compact Office on a yearly basis and made public in the Ramirent Sustainability Report.

We support the 10 principles of UN Global Compact:

1. Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and

2. Make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.

3. Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;

4. The elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;

5. The effective abolition of child labour; and

6. The elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.

7. Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;

8. Undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and

9. Encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.

10. Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
