The entrepreneurial conduct of Sedus has always included a holistic, sustainable approach to business.

The Global Compact of the United Nations is the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. Up to now, 13,000 companies and organisations from 170 different countries have pledged themselves to the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact. These 10 principles concern human rights, labour standards, the environment and fighting corruption.

In order to ensure continuous improvement, Sedus Stoll AG will, from now on, submit a yearly report to the United Nations on the progress it has achieved. By participating, we aim to foster achievement of our sustainability goals and gain new impetus as a result of the global networking of the initiative.
