Ak-Kim attaches importance to the idea of sustainable development as this idea leads to offering a livable world to future generations both as individuals and as a corporation. Within the framework of this approach, in 2007 Ak-Kim Kimya signed the “UN Global Compact” initiated by the United Nations to encourage public and private sector institutions to target sustainable development, proving its adoption of practices in line with the 10 basic principles on issues including environment, occupational health, human rights and anti-corruption.
Designed to implement “sustainability” and “corporate responsibility” practices in universally common standards and to achieve global improvements in the issues of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, the Compact has been signed by more than 10,000 corporate participants and stakeholders in over 145 countries.
Global Compact is an innovative corporate responsibility vision created to establish a joint development culture in the business world that is in continuous competition. Initiated with the idea of achieving a “sustainable and extensive global economy”, being a signatory to UNGC is completely voluntary.
Having signed the Compact in 2007, Ak-Kim Kimya annually reports that it adopts practices in conformity with the principles set for issues such as environment, occupational health, human rights and anti-corruption.Ak-Kim’s related practices are assessed in international standards.
With the Third Communication of Progress prepared within the framework of UNGC and in line with the international reporting standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Ak-Kim received approval in C-application level, thus proving that it has reached universal standards in issues including environment, occupational health, working conditions and anti-corruption.
As a transparent and sustainable company attaching great importance to sustainable development, Ak-Kim will continue efforts to improve its performance in these standards.
