In September 2019, Verisk joined the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate citizenship and sustainability initiative.
As a participant, Verisk supports and commits to making the principles of the UN Global Compact part of our corporate strategy, culture, and day-to-day operations—and to share this information and the progress we’ve made with our employees, customers, partners, suppliers, and the communities in which we live and work. Verisk further commits to helping address challenges embodied by the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The UN Global Compact is a United Nations initiative encouraging businesses worldwide to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. The Compact also supports companies taking strategic actions towards broader societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact now has more than 9,500 companies and 3,000 nonbusiness signatories across 160 countries.
In September 2015, 193 countries came together and agreed to take on the UN Sustainable Development Goals—a framework of 17 goals aimed at achieving a better and more sustainable future for everyone. At Verisk, we’re committed to helping address those UN Sustainable Development Goals falling within our sphere of influence.
