United Nations global compact

In 1999, at the World Economic Summit in Davos, Kofi Annan presented this ethical commitment initiative aimed at enterprises of all countries embraced it as an integral part of their strategy and operations. Ten principles of conduct and action in the field of Human Rights, Labour, Environment and Anti-Corruption. Ten principles that, at ENUSA, we do own.


Human Rights >

  1. Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights within their sphere of influence.
  2. Businesses should make sure they are not complicit in human rights abuses.

Labour Rights >

  1. Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining.
  2. Businesses should uphold the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour.
  3. Businesses should uphold the effective abolition of child labour.
  4. Businesses should uphold the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.

Environment Rights >

  1. Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges.
  2. Businesses should undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility.
  3. Businesses should encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.

Battle against corruption  >

  1. Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.

In 2002, the Spanish Network of the United Nations Global Compact (ASEPAM) was created with ENUSA as a founding partner, and today it is one of the most active networks in the world. As part of this ethical commitment, businesses should annually submit a Progress Report that reflects the degree of fulfillment and implementation of the ten principles.

Every year we present our reports which can be consulted on the website of the Global Compact.

Our organization launched two important initiatives as part of its commitment to the ten principles advocated by the Compact. On one hand, ENUSA included in its vendor qualification assessment system the consideration of these vendors’ level of adherence to the ten principles and their commitment to Social Responsibility.

On the other hand, an informative brochure on the Global Compact was published and distributed among our employees, explaining: what it is, what goals it pursues, how it works, and what it means for our organization to be a member of it. This brochure will gradually be distributed among other stakeholders of ours.
