Cairn is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
Participation in the UNGC sends a strong signal to investors that companies are both alert to the business implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and are taking active steps within their strategy and risk management to address such issues.
This responsibility section of our website presents the annual Communication on Progress on our performance against the UNGC Principles as part of that commitment.
Statement of continued support to the UNGC see CEO statement.
