Riskonnect furthers its commitment to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) by joining the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative
January 18, 2023
ATLANTA – Riskonnect, the leader in integrated risk management (IRM) solutions, today announced its acceptance to the United Nations Global Compact initiative – a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible business practices. Riskonnect joins more than 15,000 companies and 3,800 non-business signatories globally committed to driving responsible business practices and building a sustainable future.
“One of Riskonnect’s core values is community. We joined the United Nations Global Compact because we strive to help societies around the world thrive and we share the conviction of other participants to create a more stable and inclusive global market,” said Jim Wetekamp, Riskonnect’s CEO. “Our involvement in this initiative and adherence to its principles contribute to a better world and will create long-term value for our company, customers, and stakeholders.”
The United Nations Global Compact centers around ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. Participants of the initiative align their operations and strategies with these principles and act in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As part of Riskonnect’s participation in the United Nations Global Compact, the company will release an annual Communication on Progress that demonstrates its efforts to support and uphold these principles.
Riskonnect’s engagement with the United Nations Global Compact initiative is the latest in a series of actions the company has taken to make a positive environmental and social impact. The provider regularly looks for ways to reduce its environmental footprint, prioritizes diversity recruitment and outreach and training programs, and drives ESG in other ways. Riskonnect also enables its customers to advance ESG initiatives, reduce their own environmental footprint, and streamline the reporting process through its software.
