Today, we are pleased to announce that we have joined the United Nations Global Compact and the UN Global Compact Network UK — a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible business practices.

With this announcement, Maanch is proud to join thousands of other companies globally and in the UK, 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 12,000 companies and 3,500 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and 69 Local Networks.

“In line with our commitment to these principles, Maanch is proud to be a part of this global network united to drive sustainability and impact” noted Darshita Gillies , Founder & CEO Maanch. 

“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, labour, environment, and anti-corruption,” said Steve Kenzie, Executive Director, UN Global Compact Network UK. “We also support business taking actions to advance the Sustainable Development Goals. We are delighted and encouraged by Maanch’s endorsement of our initiative.”
