United Nations Global Compact

On June 30, 2006, Alcor's CEO Fabio Q. da Silva announced Alcor’s commitment to support the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and signed the UNGC commitment sent to the UN Secretary General. Alcor encourages all companies to adopt the UNGC’s ten principles to protect human rights, uphold ethical labor conditions, preserve the environment, and combat corruption. In the three years since we became a member, we have worked diligently to strengthen our own performance and share best practices and thought leadership with others.
