Mosaic Joins the United Nations Global Compact
The Mosaic Company is now a participant in the United Nations Global Compact. The Global Compact is the world's largest corporate citizenship initiative and asks companies to align their operations with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, while supporting broader UN initiatives, such as the Millennium Development Goals.
Since its official launch in July 2000, the initiative has grown to more than 8,000 participants; including more than 6,000 businesses in 135 countries around the world. The Global Compact involves all social actors: companies, governments, labor, civil society organizations, and the United Nations.
As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, Mosaic has affirmed its commitment to:
- Uphold and promote the Global Compact’s Ten Principles in our operating strategy, culture and day-to-day activities;
- Make a clear statement of this commitment to our employees, shareholders, customers, communities and many other stakeholders around the world. Mosaic’s commitment to the Global Compact will be reported annually in its Communication on Progress (COP).
“Mosaic and our employees take great pride in the work we do and the high ethical standards we uphold,” said Jim Prokopanko, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mosaic. “By signing the Global Compact, Mosaic is affirming our commitment to doing business in a sustainable and thoughtful manner, enriching our communities and to operating according to internationally accepted conventions and values.”
Mosaic already builds partnerships in support of the Millennium Development Goals. For example, the Mosaic Villages Project works to move smallholders out of poverty through sustainable agricultural development. The project currently reaches more than 250,000 smallholders across the globe. Mosaic will continue to integrate the principles of the Compact into the framework of the company’s corporate governance and look forward to engaging in collaborative projects that advance the broader development goals of the United Nations.
