Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise joins the United Nations Global Compact
Paris, France — December 18, 2019
ALE, operating under the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise* brand, is pleased to announce that the company has joined the United Nations (UN) Global Compact initiative — a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is part of what defines ALE as a company. Business ethics, integrity, sustainability and compliance commitments are documented in the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Code of Conduct, and are closely aligned with the stated goals of the UN Global Compact. Carla Haag, Head of the Executive Office, leads CSR and is responsible for managing the implementation of the Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Impact program, reporting and improvements, in line with the company’s commitment.
“We believe that monitoring the social and environmental impact of our business activities, and enriching our local and global communities, are essential responsibilities to meet our strategic objectives, and the basis for our sustainable growth.” explains Jack Chen, CEO of Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise.
The UN Global Compact is a call to companies to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
As a Participant of the initiative, ALE will soon be updating its profile on the UN Global Compact website to showcase progress. With this announcement, ALE is proud to join thousands of other companies around the globe who are committed to taking responsible business action to help make the world a better place.
