Press release, London, 7 August 2023
Xynteo, the purpose-driven strategic advisory firm that helps global organisations, and their leaders, find new ways to grow forward as they tackle the societal and environmental challenges, have announced they have joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative, a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible business practices.
With this announcement, we are proud to join thousands of other companies globally that committed to taking responsible business action to create the world we all want.
The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 15,000 companies and 3,800 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and more than 69 Local Networks.
Jonah Grunsell, Managing Partner, Xynteo, said “We are fundamentally committed to the idea that businesses must play a critical role in the transition to a more socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable world. By joining the UN Global Compact, we are demonstrating our organisation’s deep commitment to Xynteo’s mission to create a better future for all – but fully recognise that signing and committing to initiatives such as this is not enough. We will continue to help our partners and clients accelerate and deliver positive action and real-world impact, as well as ensure we as a company role model the world we want to help create.”
Xynteo is a purpose-driven strategic advisory firm that helps global organisations, and their leaders, find new ways to grow forward as they tackle the societal and environmental challenges that are too big, too expensive, and too complex to solve alone. We believe that business is a force for good when leaders think long term, work with, not against nature, and use their influence and resources for the many, not the few. For us, this is good growth.
