Chubb actively supports the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. We are committed to aligning business operations with the Compact’s 10 principles, which address human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption. We consider these principles to be a natural extension of our core values of global citizenship and environmental responsibility.
Established in 2000, the UN Global Compact is a voluntary initiative based on CEO commitments to implement universal sustainability principles.
“This commitment will not only expand Chubb’s ongoing sustainability efforts, but underlines our strong commitment to the overall well-being of the global society. Chubb is proud to help advance the sustainable practices of the UN Global Compact and be part of the momentum toward advancing these critical societal goals.”
Key components to committing to the Compact are public accountability and transparent disclosure of sustainability alignment efforts. Chubb filed its first annual report, “Communication on Progress,” in June 2018.
