Global Compact Logo

As a member of the UN Global Compact, it is our obligation to promote the ten principles relating to human rights, labour conditions, environmental protection and anti-corruption within the scope of our field of influence, and to actively implement them. With our Declaration of conformity with the Sustainability Code, we present our annual Communication of Progress with regard to the ten principles of the UN Global Compact.

CSR EcoVadis Gold Logo 2017

We communicate openly with our customers, staff, suppliers, partners and other stakeholders. This also means that we arrange for our current state of development and our efforts with regard to social responsibility (CSR) to be continuously and systematically inspected, evaluated and confirmed by specialists. This is done by EcoVadis in particular, an international CSR rating platform. The core areas of the EcoVadis evaluation - the environment, labour conditions, fair business practices and supply chain - are based on the ten principles of the UN Global Compact.

DNK Signatory

igefa was already one of the first ten companies in Germany to submit its first Declaration of compliance with the Sustainability Code in 2011.
The Sustainability Code provides a framework for reporting on non-financial performance. It makes sustainability achievements visible and increases the obligation for transparency, as well as making them easier to compare.
