European sustainability consultancy Xynteo has upped its commitment to ESG goals by joining the United Nations Global Compact initiative.

Headquartered in Oslo, with further offices in London, Mumbai, Gurugram, Xynteo helps companies with tackling their environmental and other ESG challenges. The consulting firm provides advisory services, supports the implementation of change projects, and enables co-creation in ecosystems.

In line with its corporate sustainability goals, Xynteo has now become a member of the United Nations Global Compact initiative, the world’s largest voluntary leadership platform for responsible business practices.

“We are fundamentally committed to the idea that businesses must play a critical role in the transition to a more socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable world. By joining the UN Global Compact, we are demonstrating our organisation’s deep commitment to Xynteo’s mission to create a better future for all – but fully recognise that signing and committing to initiatives such as this is not enough,” said Jonah Grunsell, Managing Partner at Xynteo.

Xynteo joins around 17,000 companies and 3,800 non-business signatories across 160 countries, all dedicated to taking actions that advance societal goals in accordance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Signatories commit to implementing the UN’s 10 principles and issuing a public declaration of their commitment. In turn, the United Nation offers training, peer-networks and a functional framework to aid in meeting objectives.

“The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, anti-corruption, and more. We will continue to help our partners and clients accelerate and deliver positive action and real-world impact, as well as ensure we as a company role model the world we want to help create,” said Grunsell.
