Goodness Sustainable Goals

SIG Group Holding has integrated the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals into every aspect of its business operation and has established a clear action framework to achieve its objectives. 

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
SIG United Nations Global Compact

The United Nations Global Compact is an initiative platform established by the United Nations in July 2000 to promote sustainable actions by global businesses in areas such as human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. The members of the United Nations Global Compact include various stakeholders such as businesses, non-governmental organizations, labour unions, academic institutions, and others. Members are required to commit to 10 principles that cover areas such as human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. By signing up for the Global Compact, businesses commit to integrating these principles into their operations and strategies, and to reporting publicly on their performance in these areas. The United Nations Global Compact has played an important role in promoting global sustainable development.

Taking the Lead

SIG Group Holding's UN Global Compact Journey

The United Nations Global Compact is the world's largest corporate sustainability and corporate social responsibility initiative, with more than 20,000 corporate participants and other stakeholders in over 167 countries. The UN Global Compact is a non-binding United Nations pact to get businesses and firms worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies and to report on their implementation. 

The UN Global Compact was announced by then UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in an address to the World Economic Forum in 1999 and was officially launched at UN Headquarters in New York City in 2000. The Global Compact is built upon ten universally accepted principles in human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. This groundbreaking initiative brings together companies, organizations, and stakeholders from around the world to promote sustainable and responsible business practices. 

Since 2018, the Founder and Chairman of SIG Group Holding, Shelley Tsang, has proudly signed and participated in the United Nations Global Compact, uniting visionary companies committed to driving positive change. We have integrated the ten principles of the UNGC across our operations, from respecting human rights and promoting fair labour practices to championing environmental stewardship and combating corruption.
