Petrobras takes part in UN Global Compact Leaders Meeting
Petrobras takes part in the 2013 Leaders Summit in New York, on September 19 and 20. The meeting takes place every three years between executives from companies that are part of the UN Global Compact. It is chaired by the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, under the theme of Architects of a Better World. On Friday, Petrobras Executive Manager for Social Responsibility, Armando Tripodi, will make a presentation on the alignment of Petrobras to the Global Compact principals.
Petrobras has taken part in the Leaders Summit since the first edition in 2004. The event is the largest gathering of its kind and represents an opportunity for participants to discuss strategies for corporate sustainability, as well as making recommendations and setting goals for the future. The UN Global Compact has over seven thousand signatory companies who commit to ten principles relating to human rights, labor practices, the environment, transparency and anti-corruption. Petrobras joined the Global Compact in 2003 and became a member of its International Council in 2006.
The 2013 edition
The 2013 Leaders Summit will bring together about a thousand executives from more than 100 countries to launch the Architects of a Better World platform - Linking universal and lasting values of the United Nations to a new global architecture for corporate sustainability. The main goal will be to engage businesses in the discussion of the sustainable development agenda after 2015 (deadline for the Millennium Development Goals, MDGs) and to establish Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as agreed at Rio+20, the UN Conference on Sustainable Development.
