As a member of the UN Global Compact and the German Global Compact Network (DGCN), Materna is officially committed to sustainable business practices as well as to the implementation of ten principles of the UNGC relating to human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption. The UN Global Compact is the world's largest and most important initiative for sustainable corporate governance. The German Global Compact Network brings together the German signatories of the UN Global Compact: we are part of more than 700 signatories consisting of companies, civil society, academia, associations and the public sector.
UN Global Compact has established 17 sustainability goals, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Materna has selected six sustainability goals that we as a company will be particularly active in promoting. Materna wants to make a real substantial contribution that is in line with its business purpose and values as a family business, so that the goals can be filled with life. We take into account existing points of connection to the company, what opportunities we have in the first place, and what opportunities arise from this for further entrepreneurial development.
