During Davos’ meeting of World Economic Forum, on 31 January of 1999, Kofi Annan has made Global Compact come into being. It is an international initiative that supports 10 universal principles, which are related to the human rights.
The main idea is that through the community’s action of the society, including the economic world, could be promoted the social and environmental responsibility of the firms, in order to make it possible that the business world itself could contribute to find some solutions to the globalization’s challenge. This might consent the realization of a more inclusive and sustainable global economy.
Sigeambiente adheres to Global Compact through an ethical code, which has been approved and shared by the whole organizational structure.

Sigeambiente proposes itself to support the organizations in the achievement of the sustainable development, according to what has been defined by the Treaty and by the Directives and Regulations of the European Union.
