Foragap2, society responsibility isn’t just a concept or a facade. By becoming members of Global Compact, we are committing ourselves to incorporate the principles of its charter into our strategy, our organisation and all our operations.

 

REPORTING – INCORPORATION OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OBJECTIVES INTO COMMUNICATIONS ON PROGRESS

Since mid-September 2016, the United Nations Global Compact has been collecting data on company support to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) through Communications on Progress (COP). In reality, two more (optional) questions have been added to the COP self-assessment questionnaires of levels GC Active and GC Advanced, on the site unglobalcompact.org. These concern the incorporation of the SDGs into company activities. Global Compact France translated these questions into French and remains at your disposal for any help you may need.

 

 

Social responsibility is more than an abstract concept, it’s an everyday practice!
