Calvert Releases Annual United Nations Global Compact Communication on Progress
Calvert Investments is pleased to share its annual 2012 UN Global Compact Communication on Progress (COP) with stakeholders. As a member of the UN Global Compact, Calvert reports out each year on the progress it has made over the past year in support of the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles across the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
Beginning with a statement from the CEO, the COP includes the actions Calvert has taken during the past year to further the Principles and the relevant results. “We are pleased to support the UN Global Compact and the Ten Principles as a valuable part of our business,” said President and CEO Barbara Krumsiek. “Having been a supporter for over a decade, we find that its work closely aligns with our own as a provider of sustainable and responsible investment strategies.”
For the first time this year, this COP also serves as our annual disclosure for the CEO Water Mandate, of which we are also a member and highlights our involvement in each of the six CEO Water Mandate work elements.
Calvert has been a longtime supporter of the UN Global Compact and has been disclosing annual Communications on Progress for several years.
