The main focus of this latest edition is the 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). The event marked a crossroad for sustainable development and set the sustainability agenda for the next decade. Therefore, the world expected that a strong call for responsible and sustainable business practices – as covered by the United Nations Global Compact – would emerge as a result. The aim of this publication is to provide a global overview of the achievements of the Global Compact. It offers proactive and in-depth information on key sustainability issues to stakeholders all around the world and promotes unique and comprehensive knowledge exchange and learning in the spirit of the Global Compact principles.



Self-assessment on human rights

Having become a participant of the UN Global Compact in 2003, Groupe SEB is committed to respecting the Ten Principles of the agreement. For the Group, which has a presence in several continents, including Asia, it was necessary to find a tool capable of transforming this commitment in principle into a concrete reality. This would enable an evaluation of the manner in which these Principles were taken into account locally in each of the Group’s subsidiaries. Accordingly, in 2007 the Group adopted the HRCA Quick Check (Human Rights Compliance Assessment) – a self-assessment tool developed by the Danish Institute for Human Rights and supported by the United Nations.
