The company thus confirms its commitment to positive impact by joining
the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.

Since 2000, the Global Compact has been driving private sector

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Ignacio Rivera, CEO, notes that “our adherence is a new encouragement to continue working day by day and transform our organization with the aim of generating a positive impact on our environment. We have a long way to go, but we are ambitious, and nonconformist and we will do everything in our power to achieve it.”

Corporación Hijos de Rivera confirms its commitment to positive impact
and sustainability by announcing its accession to the United Nations Global
Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. Since 2000,
this initiative has been driving private sector engagement with Ten Universally
Accepted Principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, the
environment and the fight against corruption. In addition to adapting its
operations to comply with these principles, action is also required to support
the United Nations objectives currently embodied in the Sustainable Development
Goals (SDGs).

For Corporación Hijos de Rivera, joining the Global Compact means
reaffirming the company’s firm commitment to generating positive impact and
joining a long list of companies worldwide that combine stretches by taking
responsible business actions to create the world we want.

Ignacio Rivera, CEO of Corporación Hijos de Rivera, notes that “our
adherence to the United Nations Global Compact is new encouragement to
further transform our organization with the aim of generating a positive impact
on our environment. We have much to do, but we do not lack the will or ambition
to achieve it. We are nonconformists and our commitment to our origin, to our
people, our planet, and our allies is firm.  We know that we are not going
to change the world alone, but we will do everything in our power to improve
it”

The Galician company has been immersed for years in an ambitious plan
that places special focus on the care of the planet, people, working together
with its allies, building bridges, and protecting its origin. To do this, it
has been investing great efforts and resources, and involving all areas of the
organization to transform its activity from within and reach milestones such as
the carbon neutrality of its main facilities that it announced a month ago.
