MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Oct. 3, 2016) - Earth Alive Clean Technologies Inc. (CSE:EAC)(CSE:EAC.CN) ("Earth Alive" or the "Company"), a leading Canadian Clean-Tech company, developer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art microbial technology-based products, is pleased to announce that it has been formally accepted as a member of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact. The Global Compact is the world's largest corporate citizenship initiative, with thousands of business participants, other stakeholders from civil society, labour, and government based in over 160 countries.
The UN Global Compact asks participating companies to pursue two complementary goals: (1) internalize the Ten Principles within the company's strategies, policies and operations and (2) undertake projects to advance the broader development goals of the United Nations, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals. Implementation of universal principles into business is a long-term process, and the Global Compact encourages participants to follow a path of continuous improvement. This commitment requires the sustained support of leadership through ongoing activities and partnerships, as well as a company's engagement in dialogues, willingness to learn and dedication to practical actions.
"It is an honour for Earth Alive to be accepted as participants in the UN Global Compact," stated David Gilmour, CEO of Earth Alive. "We are committed to making the UN Global Compact and its principles part of the strategy, culture and day-to-day operations of our Company, and to engage in collaborative projects which advance the broader development goals of the United Nations, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals."
Mr. Frédéric Perron-Welch, Director of Sustainable Development for the Company further added, "Responsible business, rooted in universal principles, is essential to achieving transformational change through the Sustainable Development Goals, and successful implementation will strengthen the enabling environment for doing business and building markets around the world. By encouraging companies like Earth Alive to operate responsibly and take strategic actions that support society, joining the UN Global Compact will work to ensure that our business activities adds value not only to the bottom-line, but also to people, communities and the planet."
