The 10 principles of the UN Global Compact Human rights Businesses should support and respect the protection of interna- make sure their own corporations are not indirectly linked to human rights abuses. Labor Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining; eliminate all forms of forced and compulsory labor; effectively abolish child labor; and eliminate any discrimination in respect of employment and occupation. Environment Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environ- mental challenges; undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsi- bility; and encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies. Anti-corruption Businesses should work against corruption in all forms, including extortion and bribery. UN Global Compact The Lufthansa Group is committed to the principles of the UN Global Compact, the largest initiative worldwide for responsible and sustainable corporate management. In 2002 Lufthansa was the rst aviation group to become a member of the initiative, that had been set up two years earlier by the then UN Secretary General Ko Annan. By joining, the participating companies commit themselves to aligning their busi- ness activities and strategies to the ten universally accepted principles of the UN Global Compact in the areas of human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and prevention of corruption (see overview on this page). The shared goal is to make globalization socially and environmentally compatible and thus to make a contribution to sustainable eco- nomic practices for the bene t of all people and markets. Over the past years, the Lufthansa Group has launched numerous programs in this area. Examples include the step-by-step expansion of the Group-wide compliance program, the continuous implementation of sustainable processes along the output chain, and the numerous measures in ight operations in favor of environmentally com- patible mobility. The focus on humanitarian and social projects in the area of corporate citizenship is an important concern for the Lufthansa Group in its role as a globally active company. For this reason, there is a best-practice example on this topic in the anniversary edition of the German UN Global Compact yearbook, which was published at the beginning of 2016. Citing the Group-wide employee initiative Help Alliance, it shows how the Company’s social commitment is lled with life and illustrates how the principles of the Global Compact are applied in practice.
