Every Day is “Global” at ICU.

Global ICU

Membership to UN Global Compact

ICU joined the United Nations Global Compact in April 2009. ICU joins the compact as a voluntary initiative for participation in a global framework created to realize sustainable growth and actions as positive members of global society through businesses and other participating organizations demonstrating responsible creative leadership.

In endorsing the 10 principles that form the main support of the compact (including that 'businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights' and undertaking 'initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility,' among others), ICU makes the utmost commitment to a continued effort towards realizing these principles.

The United Nations Global Compact was announced in 2000 by then UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and is supported by current Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
