AGL joins the United Nations Global Compact

By Andy Vesey – Managing Director & CEO,  AGL Energy Limited

I am pleased to let you know today that AGL Energy Limited has become a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC).

As a signatory, we have committed to the ten sustainability principles below, which are derived from: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the ILO’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption:

ungc-principlesWe join over 8,000 business and 4,000 non-business signatories to the UNGC globally, including over 100 actively participating organisations in Australia.

Our public support of these principles builds on much of the important work that AGL Energy Limited is already doing to ensure the long-term sustainability of our business, such as our focus on driving a safe, diverse and inclusive workplace culture, and the leadership position we have taken in transforming to a carbon constrained future.

I am positive that our support of the UNGC principles will also drive further improvements in the way we work, the way we procure goods and services, and the way we support our customers.

We look forward to communicating our progress against each of the principles in our FY2017 Sustainability Report.

Andy Vesey – Managing Director & CEO
