As a global player, GC Rieber Compact has made investments in India and South Africa to cater to the needs of the Asian and African region where the issue of malnutrition is the most severe. The idea was to use local ingredients to produce and provide solutions to the beneficiary right there where it is needed the most.
At GC Rieber, we believe in social responsibility and sustainable development within our entire business operation. We believe that companies can better support international sustainability programs by actively using their know-how and competence to drive economic, environmental and social development through their own initiatives and efforts.
In 2010 when Compact was taken over by the GC Rieber Group, it introduced the GC Rieber group to the UN Global Compact initiative and became a participant. This is currently the world’s largest initiative for corporate social responsibility with more than 8000 businesses from 145 different countries.
UN Global Compact has drawn up ten universal principles that encourage and demonstrate how businesses should take into account:
- Labour rights
- Human rights
- Protection of the environment
GC Rieber Compact commits to reach 1.5 million beneficiaries by the year 2020.
