Desso Signs UN Global Compact

Desso, a global carpets and sports pitches company, has signed a letter to the United Nations’ secretary general Ban Ki-moon declaring its support for the UN Global Compact and its principles in relations to human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.

The company says it will make the Global Compact and its principles part of its business strategy and day-to-day operations.

Since 2008 Desso says it has adopted circular economy practices powered by Cradle to Cradle principles to make things that can be made again “in an ever-moving non-toxic closed loop.”

This involves using sustainable materials to make its products, developing scalable take back and recycling systems, employing sustainable water management techniques and using renewable energy.

In support of open and transparent communications, also in line with the UN Global Compact, Desso publishes an annual corporate responsibility report, adhering to the Global Reporting Initiative standards. Desso’s 2013 CR report gained a B+ level status, was verified by GRI and externally assured by Deloitte.
