The association reaffirms supporting the United Nations corporate sustainability program
Aberje has released the report on activities developed over the past two years with the United Nations Global Compact. As a signatory to the UN’s corporate sustainability program, the association has reaffirmed its support for principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and the fight against corruption.
All participants are committed to promoting and supporting the 10 Principles of the Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their daily activities and initiatives by joining the network. According to the UN, the report must be submitted on the Global Compact’s international website every two years and published on the participating organization or institution’s main communication channels.
Over the past two years, Aberje has put the following actions into practice: attracted new participants to the UN Global Compact through its outreach and awareness-raising efforts; promoted, disseminated, and supported learning and dialogue events, workshops, and training for its members on the Pact and specific topics relevant to corporate sustainability; provided its experience for working groups and special Pact initiatives; involved its members in collective action efforts; continually cited the association’s commitment to the SDGs at organized events; actively participated in the organization of meetings and support for members participating in the Rede Ação para Comunicr e Engajar on Brazil Platform, of which Aberje maintains the executive secretariat with the representative Natália de Campos Tamura.
Among the main initiatives related to its commitments to the SDGs are creating the Advanced Program at the Aberje School of Communication for Sustainability and Diversity; supporting the launch of the second edition of the CEBDS Communication Guide for Sustainability; taking part of the Global Compact in face-to-face meetings and calls; creating a dedicated blog so that Platform Action participants could disseminate reflections and discussions on the 2030 Agenda; participating in meetings, forums, campaigns, webinars, and courses offered by the Global Compact, either in person or online.
