Garnica, a world leader in manufacturing premium sustainable plywood is pleased to announce that they have officially joined the United Nations (UN) Global Compact as a part of their commitment to creating a sustainable future. This corporate sustainability initiative is the world’s largest. It supports companies to conduct business responsibly and take strategic actions to advance broader societal goals with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation.
In September 2015, all 193 Member States of the UN adopted a plan called Agenda 2030 for achieving a better future — laying out a path to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and protect our planet by 2030. This plan is based upon 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which define the ideal world.
“At Garnica, using environmentally friendly raw materials and supporting sustainability measures is of utmost importance. We are completely aligned with the SDGs defined by the UN Global Compact and have therefore officially joined the movement to contribute to making the world a better place for all.” said Pedro Garnica, Garnica’s president.
Garnica has set a standard, inspiring other businesses to follow their lead in transforming the world, promoting prosperity, and protecting the planet while supporting diversity, equality, and an inclusive culture.
