ZURICH, Switzerland, December 8, 2022 – The UN Global Compact Network Switzerland & Liechtenstein is a legally independent business association and only official platform of the New York-based United Nations Global Compact in Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
In regard to the recent public discussions around Migros’ participation in the UN Global Compact, we would like to confirm that Migros has been a participant of the UN Global Compact Switzerland & Liechtenstein in the past. However, in 2019 Migros decided to not renew their participation due to cost reasons. Ever since Migros has not been a participating member of the UN Global Compact.
About the UN Global Compact Network Switzerland & Liechtenstein We seek to promote responsible business practices by stimulating multi-stakeholder dialogue, providing knowledge, tools and mutual learning for businesses in Switzerland and Liechtenstein to engage in corporate responsibility and sustainability. We support companies to align their corporate strategies and operations with the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption and to take actions to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
