“Being Global Compact LEAD increases our sense of responsibility towards people and the Planet. Companies and institutions need urgently to work together, in a spirit of trust and multilateral cooperation, to find effective answers to global challenges and transformations. Investing in the technologies of the future through continuous innovation is at the centre of our sustainability strategy. By participating in the Global Compact and its collaboration platforms we are an active part of a global movement that, on the basis of different experiences but shared principles, is committed to innovating business models, also through new governance and finance approaches, to build a more equitable, inclusive and sustainable world." (Alessandro Profumo)

More than 1,000 Chief Executive Officers, including our CEO Alessandro Profumo, have demonstrated their support for the United Nations and inclusive multilateralism by signing a Statement from Business Leaders for Renewed Global Cooperation. The Statement was presented to UN Secretary-General António Guterres at the opening of the event “Uniting Business LIVE”, organized by Global Compact in the framework of the high-level meeting of the General Assembly to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations.
