Manchester, CT – Civil and environmental engineering firm Fuss & O’Neill is pleased to announce that we 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, Fuss & O’Neill is proud to join thousands of other companies globally 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 10 universally-accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, 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.
“Fuss & O’Neill is proud to formally commit ourselves to be part of a global movement focused on helping set standards for sustainable and responsible business practices,” notes Diane Mas, PhD, REHS/RS, CC-P, the firm’s Chief Resilience Officer. “Our engagement with the UN Global Compact demonstrates our commitment to sustainability, including climate resilience, in our own operations and underscores our mission to create long-term, shared value for our clients and our communities by meeting the needs of the present while working towards an environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable future.”
