Arla and the UN Global Compact

In 2008, Arla joined the United Nations Global Compact, an initiative to promote ethical business practices.

Arla and UN Global Compact

Our Code of Conduct harmonises well with the ten basic principles of the UN Global Compact. As participants in the UN Global Compact, we are committed to incorporating the initiative and its principles into our strategy and corporate culture – and communicating them to our employees, owners, suppliers, partners, customers and the rest of our community.

The Annual Arla CSR report

Our commitment to the UN Global Compact also involves an obligation to prepare an open and honest annual report on how we have succeeded in complying with our Code of Conduct. In the report, Our Responsibility - CSR Report (in English), we describe our progress during the year and also where we see opportunities to make improvements. As part of these efforts to allow a positive attitude to sustainability to permeate all activities within Arla, we have chosen to involve a large number of colleagues in the preparation of this report. 

Member of the UN Global Compact Nordic Network

In 2009, we joined the UN Global Compact Nordic Network. The network holds two conferences each year to discuss relevant topics and share experiences.

Arla is a "Caring for Climate" signatory

In May 2009, we signed the UN Global Compact Caring for Climate initiative, which is a voluntary activity for companies who wish to make an active contribution to improving the climate. Through Caring for Climate we demonstrate our commitment to improving the environment by practical means and our interest in spreading awareness of climate-related issues in the community.
