Wolar Joins United Nations Global Compact

October 31, 2022

Today, Wolar is pleased to announce that we have joined the United Nations Global Compat initiative – a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible business practices.

With this announcement, Wolar is proud to join thousands of other companies globally committed to taking responsible business action to create the world we all want.

The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 15,000 companies and 3,800 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and more than 69 Local Networks.

β€œIn line with our commitment to these principles, Wolar is committed to developing our corporate strategies around the sustainable development goals. We have a huge responsibility to use our resources and influence to engender generations of prosperity, not just for our own families and communities, but for everyone.” noted Jorge Lara, Chief Executive Officer.
