In 2000, the United Nations introduced its Global Compact as a strategic policy initiative for businesses based on the promotion and implementation of 10 universal principles. These 10 principles provide a framework for compliance with human rights, labor standards, environmental and corruption prevention measures.

The Fives group officially joined the UN Global Compact on April 14, 2011.

Each year, the overall progress made by the global CSR (corporate social responsibility) program of the Group and how that progress relates to the commitment made by Fives to respect and promote the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact is disclosed in the CSR and Annual report.
