The awarded companies according to the UN go well beyond accomplishing the goals of sustainable development and do a responsible job in the global supply chains. Among such leaders currently listed on the global market as Danone, Nestlé or Volvo, Pernod Ricard is another one to be present. Its presence among the companies with the most intense approach to social responsibility and sustainable development is absolutely justified since all products in the Pernod Ricard portfolio are organic and a special focus has been placed on environmental protection making it one of the key pillars of the company since the very beginning. The company has also been committed to transparency towards all its partners and communities in which it is actively engaged. Pernod Ricard joined the global initiative Global Compact and goes beyond the call of duty along with all its members to meet all requirements of the goals of sustainable development.
Erik Čížek, CEO of Pernod Ricard Slovakia weighed in on the award : „We take immense pride in the fact that we are the only company in the industry to become the member of the Global Compact Lead this year. Ever since the foundation of Pernod Ricard, we have been committed to take daring steps to ensuring sustainable development and a responsible approach across all walks of our business. We are also delighted to follow in our commitment in the Global Compact initiative in order to take further action in the direction of doing our job towards achieving the goals of sustainable development set by 2030.“
