As part of its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policy, Ekinops engages in daily business activities with an endeavor to be a responsible company with respect to third parties and to limit the environmental impact of its activities to advance towards sustainable development goals.

Signing the UNGC means Ekinops is willing to integrate the UNGC principles into the Group’s strategy, culture and daily operations, and to advance them in its area of influence. By signing the UNGC, Ekinops commits to publishing a yearly Communication on Progress (COP), describing the Group's efforts to integrate the ten principles.

"Several months after creating its ESG committee, Ekinops continues its efforts towards sustainable value creation. We are proud to be a signatory of this UN Global Compact statement and to take this commitment. Ekinops will play its role by ensuring we better ourselves alongside the other parts of our ecosystem."
