Nidec Global Appliance renews its commitment to a global cooperation of companies for a better world
The company is among enterprises from over 100 countries that have demonstrated their support to the “Statement for Renewed Global Cooperation”
September 2020 – Nidec Global Appliance is one of over 1.000 companies that have renewed its commitment with the Global Compact, promoted by the United Nations (UN), the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world. “The Statement for Renewed Global Cooperation” has been signed by 1,294 CEOs from companies in more than 100 countries, aiming to unite large, small and medium-sized enterprises, from a variety of sectors, in this common goal.
“Our commitment with this Statement is one of the ways to reinforce our role as a transformation agent in the private sector, encouraging ethical and sustainable practices throughout the supply chain, in line with the values practiced by Nidec Global Appliance worldwide. We understand that, in addition to the internal and external initiatives adopted by our company, we are also positive influencers in the sector in which we operate and promoters of this global cooperation”, says Valter Taranzano, CEO of Nidec Global Appliance.
The Statement developed by the United Nations Global Compact emerged at a time in which the world is facing one of its biggest crises, with the Covid-19 pandemic amid global warming impacts, economic uncertainty, rising disinformation and social inequality. This is an important context for private and public institutions to be encouraged to show their ethic, transparency and commitment with sustainability.
The joint action of CEOs was announced at the opening of the UN Private Sector Forum, on September 21st, the first of a series of three events that happen in parallel to the UN General Assembly, named as “United Business Live”, organized by the Global Compact to promote sustainable development goals.
