Better Earth is pleased to announce that we have joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative — a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices.

With this announcement, Better Earth is proud to join thousands of other companies globally committed to taking responsible business action to create the world we all want. 

The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 15,000 companies and 3,800 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and more than 69 Local Networks. 

“At Better Earth, we take pride in thinking globally and acting locally. Aligning with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals has helped us define our Sustainability Strategy and drive impact and innovation across the organization and our value chain,” noted Savannah Seydel, Vice President of Sustainability.
