AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SoftServe, a leading digital authority and consulting company, has become an official member of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact, an initiative that brings businesses worldwide together to implement the principles of sustainable development and corporate responsibility.
The UN Global Compact currently brings together more than 13,000 companies in 161 countries. The initiative's mission is to achieve large-scale social changes globally, rallying businesses around the UN’s Ten Principles, including supporting and protecting human rights, eliminating all forms of forced labor, implementing environmental initiatives, and working against corruption.
"For SoftServe, joining the UN Global Compact initiative is a new step towards building a sustainable business,” said Yaroslav Lyubinets, Chairman of the Board of Directors at SoftServe. “It is an opportunity to become part of the global movement of companies that are today changing the world for the better."
SoftServe’s cooperation with the United Nations began in 2019. The company participated in the Hack for Locals hackathon that aimed to develop creative digital solutions to solve problems in local communities. In 2021, SoftServe joined Co-create with Locals, the pilot program for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). This initiative aims to engage activists in developing innovative solutions in public safety and social cohesion and will be implemented on SoftServe’s Innovation Platform.
