Autoliv, a global provider of automotive safety systems, has become a Signatory of the United Nations’ (UN) Global Compact initiative.
Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, calling companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, and to take actions that advance societal goals. Today, nearly 10,000 companies in 162 different countries around the world have joined the initiative.
The UN Global Compact supports companies to do business responsibly by aligning their strategies and operations with 10 principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. It also encourages participants to take strategic actions to advance broader societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation.
Autoliv’s work supports the UN Sustainable Development Goal No. 3: Good health and well-being, and its target of halving global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents by 2020.
“Signing the Global Compact demonstrates Autoliv’s commitment to sustainable development for our key stakeholders and our participation in the Global Compact network also provides valuable learning opportunities and resources to us, which we can leverage to reach our sustainability goals,” said Kaisa Tarna-Mani, Autoliv vice president, Sustainability.
