NEW YORK, August 9, 2019 (Newswire.com) - The United Nations Global Compact has announced today that 5th Element Group PBC has joined as a signatory and a participant. The Global Compact is a strategic initiative for organizations within the public and private sectors to align their operations and strategies with ten universal principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
“The principals of 5th Element Group PBC have been friends of the United Nations for years and are global champions for the Sustainable Development Goals in numerous ways,” said William Kennedy, Senior Programme Officer of UN Officer for Partnerships. “5th Element champions the SDG Framework at UN events and events around the world, as well as with all their investor, donor, NGO and brand clients.”
5th Element Group is a global impact accelerator that connects KPI-driven performance to SDG-aligned purpose. 5th Element designs and activates flagship “Public Private Partnerships” with its clients and provides related consulting services – including executive search and workplace wellbeing training for Leaders Who Care®, because they are the ones that make the real impact.
“The Sustainable Development Goals represent a very strategic framework for creating omniwin initiatives that connect actions to impact” said Edward Martin, Chief Omniwin Officer of 5th Element Group. “We are accelerating the way that the marketplace sees how purpose advances performance.”
Earlier this year, 5th Element opened an office in Delhi, India with significant momentum under the leadership of country President Pratik Gauri.
"India must play a leadership role if the pursuit of the UN SDGs by 2030 can become a reality," Gauri said. "Our demographics give India a unique opportunity for upside, and dramatic gains in how we score against the Goals."
The UN Global Compact now includes 9,913 companies in 161 countries who have documented more than 64,000 SDG-aligned actions to date.
