The U.N. Global Compact is a voluntary corporate responsibility initiative which currently has over 12,000 participants – including 8,000 businesses from more than 140 countries – who commit to aligning their operations to values and sustainability.
“Freudenberg has always aligned itself in accordance with values and sustainability. We signed the Global Compact, because it’s important to communicate our conduct towards our customers, neighbors, potential colleagues and institutions,”Dr. Mohsen Sohi, Speaker of the Freudenberg Group’s Board of Management
The ten principles of the Global Compact relate to Human Rights, Labor, Environment and Anti-Corruption. Sustainable action is a consequence of Freudenberg’s economic, ecological and societal responsibility and its social tradition. The fundamental principles of the Compact are reflected in the Freudenberg Group’s Guiding Principles, part of the company culture since first introduced in 1887.
Freudenberg’s commitment to responsible and sustainable business practices applies to all business groups within the company. When sourcing interlining, thermal insulation, canvas, or other apparel components from Freudenberg, Apparel manufacturers, brands, and end-consumers are assured that these products come from a company committed to being a responsible corporate citizen.
