Participation in the UNGC
Contributing to sustainable social and global development
In order to better fulfill its social responsibilities in the international community, the DIC Group pledged its support and was registered as a participating company in December 2010 for the 10 Principles and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) being advanced by the United Nations. The UNGC is a voluntary action plan proposed by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan in 1999, and is run by its member companies. More than 8,000 companies and organizations have pledged their support based on the idea that worldwide sustainable development can be achieved if corporations observe internationally accepted norms for human rights, labor, and the environment in the course of conducting business.
