ZABALA joins the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, the UN Global Compact

ZABALA Innovation Consulting subscribes to the UN global compact initiative, that promotes corporate sustainability, meeting fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. This is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative involving more than 12.000 entities in more than 160 countries.

By incorporating the ten Global Compact principles into strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity, Zabala is not only upholding their basic responsibilities to people and planet, but also setting the stage for long-term success.

With the participation of CEOs belonging to the network, the UN Global Compact provides a universal language for corporate responsibility and a framework to guide all businesses regardless of size, complexity or location.

In doing so, Zabala commits to the UN Global Compact’s ten principles derived from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights below:

Human Rights

Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and

Principle 2: make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.


Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;

Principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;

Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labour; and

Principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.


Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;

Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and

Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.


Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
