As a signatory, Leyton supports the Global Compact’s 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption, deepening the company’s commitment to responsible business practices worldwide.
Leyton annually issues an accurate United Nations Global Compact Communication on Progress (COP) to highlight its key sustainable achievements.
Despite the unstable and complicated context related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the environment, employee well-being and solidarity remained the priorities for Leyton in 2020. Donations for research and the most needy, free consultancy for companies involved in the fight against Covid, as well as the organisation of the Sustainable Organisations Summit and actions to provide the best possible support for employees despite remoted work are just some of the many actions carried out in the Group last year.
“By further embedding environmental and social dimensions into our strategy and processes, we are building the fundamentals for sustainable growth.” Says Leyton’s CEO & Founder, François GOUILLIARD. “At Leyton, we believe that by fully understanding and managing our impact on people and the environment, while being a committed employer, we create the basis for long-term sustainable profitability.”
Our membership in the United Nations Global Compact helps us leverage our efforts by working with other leading organizations focused on a sustainable future to reach the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
