AVEVA, a global leader in engineering and industrial software, has joined the United Nations Global Compact and the UN Global Compact Network UK for creating a more sustainable world.

 

Craig Hayman, CEO, AVEVA commented, “Joining the UN Global Compact cements our existing commitment to align our business with the Ten Principles, and provides an exciting platform for learning and collaboration with other members. AVEVA’s key focus will initially be on areas where our social and environmental contribution can be greatest, including addressing the climate crisis and expediting the transition to a more circular global economy."

 

AVEVA will accelerate this journey by delivering products and solutions which will drive more sustainable outcomes for our customers while also providing additional benefits for our employee and partner ecosystem focused on ultimately creating a better environment for all, Hayman added.

 

Steve Kenzie, Executive Director, UN Global Compact Network UK said, "The core of the United Nations Global Compact’s mission is to support companies doing business responsibly by aligning their strategies and operations with ten universal principles on human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. We also support business taking actions to advance the Sustainable Development Goals. We are delighted and encouraged by AVEVA’s endorsement of our initiative.”

 

Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 12,000 companies and 3,500 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries and 69 local networks. Its aim is to mobilize a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world that conducts business responsibly by aligning its strategies and operations with Ten Principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption; and takes strategic actions to advance broader societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation.

 

AVEVA is enabling its customers to advance their own sustainability efforts with software solutions that can be applied across more than nine industry verticals to address challenges such as providing real-time energy data and supporting improved operational efficiency to help customers cut their energy consumption and emissions.
