As a special initiative of the UN Secretary-General, the United Nations 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.
1. Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
2. make sure that they are not complicit in human rights absuses.
3. Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges.
4. Undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility ; and
5. Encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
6. Businesses should uphold the freedom association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
7. The elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
8. the effective abolition of child labour; and
9. the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.

At Altares, we prevent any kind of discrimination by setting up different plans, such as the Index Egapro that focuses on the equality of salaries between men and women. This tool helps us to transparently expose any pay differences between men and women in similar positions, leading to a corrective action plan. Altares achieved a score of 88/100 in its assessment and we continue our improvement actions.
