Freshuelva has joined the United Nations Global Compact, the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world with more than 12,500 member entities in more than 160 countries. In doing so, the Spanish berry association becomes the first association in the agri-food sector to adhere to this pact.
The Global Compact is committed to aligning its activity with the ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, the environment and the fight against corruption, as well as to adopt measures in support of the objectives of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Freshuelva’s manager, Rafael Domínguez, said the association was “aware of our obligation as a responsible entity, to develop our activity by promoting economic, social and environmental initiatives that generate a positive impact on the whole of the society”.
He said Freshuelva’s adhesion to the UN’s Spain Global Compact “reflects its commitment to aligning its activities with the objective of collaborating in the global advance towards a more just, equitable and sustainable world”.
