Reconciliation of Global Compact principles with the GRI indicators

Global impact is an initiative launched by the Secretary General of the United Nations at the end of the World Economic Forum in 1999. In his appeal, he invited the leaders of the world economy to provide their support and disclose nine universal principles relating to human rights, work and the environment, which were joined by a tenth - the fight against corruption - in 2004, and since then the network of organisations and business which have complied with the initiative, committing themselves formally, has expanded. 

Acea has subscribed to the ten principles since 2007, renewing its compliance every year.

A reconciliation is presented below6, between the Global Compact principles and GRI indicators, which highlights the correlation of the same, and makes it possible to trace the information envisaged by the Communication of Progress, which every compliant company is obliged to draw up.
