Vigeo Eiris publishes its “Communication on Progress 2016/2017” to the UN Global Compact
Vigeo Eiris joined the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in 2005, and has applied and promoted its principles and objectives ever since. Our commitment to the UNGC is natural, given that Vigeo Eiris’ raison d’être is the assessment and development of social responsibility.
On December 12th, two years after the historical Paris agreement, more than 60 Head of States and governments were gathered at the One Planet Summit, jointly held by President Emmanuel Macron in France, the President of the World Bank and the Secretary General of the United Nations.
Vigeo Eiris hails the initiative of financial actors recognising the materiality and usefulness of extra-financial rating
This is a significant step in the generalisation of issuers communicating on their extra-financial rating, and the full recognition by signatories on its contribution to informed financial and investment decisions.
