UN Global Compact for human rights and the environment

Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan launched the UN Global Compact in 2000. This pact is a worldwide initiative. The agreement works between companies and the United Nations (UN) and aims to make globalisation socially and environmentally compatible. It obliges participating companies to comply with minimum social and ecological standards, to respect human rights and to fight corruption. At the Lufthansa Group, we adhere to these principles together. For more information:
