CNX Therapeutics commits to align its operations and strategies to the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact
CNX Therapeutics is committed to having a positive impact on society, and we are proud to announce our first key milestone in our mission to take a pioneering approach to ESG; we are now participants to the UN Global Compact, a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices.
As a participant in the initiative, CNX commits to making the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, part of our strategy, culture, and day-to-day operations. We also commit to public accountability and transparency around our actions.
CNX Therapeutics’ CEO, Guy Clark says, “We are thrilled to be part of a mission to create a movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders striving for a better world. Through our participation in the UN Global Compact initiative, we are making a clear statement to our customers and stakeholders that we are dedicated to creating a connected and more sustainable future for all”.
As part of the UN Global Compact, CNX will submit an annual Communication on Progress (CoP) that describes our efforts to implement the Ten Principles, which includes:
- A statement signed by the CEO expressing continued support of the UN Global Compact and renewing CNX’s ongoing commitment to the initiative and the Ten Principles.
- Information on CNX’s continuous efforts to integrate the Ten Principles into its business strategy, culture, and daily operations.
- It will also provide details of our activities in relation to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, namely SDG 3 on Good Health and Wellbeing, SDG 5 on Gender Equality, and SDG 13 on Climate Action.
Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world. It includes more than 15,000 companies and 3,800 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries and more than 69 local networks.
