Kopenhagen Fur supports the United Nations' Global Compact

The many companies of the world must be part of the solution for the social, political and economic challenges that exist today. This is the idea behind the UN Global Compact, a programme created by the United Nations which now numbers approx. 10,000 companies spread across 130 nations supporting the initiative.

Being a member of the UN Global Compact, Kopenhagen Fur is obligated to run the company within the framework of the UN Global Compact’s 10 principles. This framework incorporates human rights, labour standards, environment and anti-corruption.

Members of the UN Global Compact are required to report annually about status and progress. Kopenhagen Fur’s reports can be viewed on the UN Global Compact’s website.
