Calvert Releases Annual United Nations Global Compact and CEO Water Mandate Communication on Progress
Calvert Investments is pleased to share its combined UN Global Compact and CEO Water Mandate annual 2013 Communication on Progress (COP) with stakeholders. As a member of the UN Global Compact, Calvert reports each year on the progress it has made in support of the UN Global Compact's Ten Principles across the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Calvert also highlights its advances across the six work elements as part of the CEO Water Mandate.
Harnessing the power of investment to strengthen corporate responsibility and contribute to global sustainability, Calvert's most significant impacts come from its advocacy efforts and application of its sustainability criteria. This approach is closely aligned overall with the UN Global Compact and the CEO Water Mandate on water issues.
Beginning with a statement from the President and CEO, the COP includes the actions Calvert has taken during the past year to further the Principles and the relevant results as well as our progress on the CEO Water Mandate work elements. Calvert was the first investment company to endorse the CEO Water Mandate and we remain committed to achieving progress with the Mandate's elements. Calvert has also been a longtime supporter of the UN Global Compact and as such has been disclosing annual Communications on Progress for several years and this is the second year that the reporting for both has been combined.
