Contact Originators has signed up to the United Nations Global Compact to support the creation of more sustainable supply chains for the print and packaging industries.
The UN Global Compact, the world’s largest sustainability initiative, unites over 15,000 companies and 4,000 non-business participants globally in their commitment to building a sustainable future. The Compact is a call to action for companies around the world to align their operations and strategies with 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment, and anti-corruption.
Nick Mitchell, (pictured) Operations Director, Contact Originators, said, “As a key supplier to the print and packaging industries we are committed to leading by example and setting a benchmark for others when it comes to sustainable operations. However, this is not only about Contact Originators as an individual business; our focus is to improve sustainability performance along the supply chains that we operate in, so that our customers and their customers benefit too.”
Steve Mulcahy, CEO, Contact Group, added, “Our aim is to support the creation of a responsible, resource-efficient and ethically sound print and packaging industry that we can all be proud of. By joining the UN Global Compact, it enables us to align our own company ambitions and values with a much larger framework relating to environmental, social and governance matters. At the same time we have the opportunity to engage with other members and share best practices within our industry.”
