ESG Aims and Principles

UN Global Compact

 

The UN Global Compact was launched in 2000 as a special initiative of the UN Secretary-General, the UN Global Compact provides a framework for developing a more sustainable and responsible business.

Angus Energy are currently in discussions with this organisation to be an active participant in the UN Global Compact. As part of this partnership we will make an annual public disclosure on the progress we have made in implementing their 10 sustainability principles and in supporting broader UN development goals. This annual disclosure will be through a ‘Communication on Progress’ that will be published both on our website and on the UN Global Compact website.
