Participation in UN initiative
EPCOS joined the Global Compact initiative launched by the United Nations in 2003. The aim of the Global Compact is a voluntary consensus among globally operating companies, institutions and organizations on fundamental ethical principles and their application. These include protection of human rights in labor relations as well as development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
Participation in the Global Compact is further evidence that EPCOS is honoring its commitment to establishing exemplary social and environmental standards in the company worldwide, putting them into practice, and thus meeting its responsibility for sustainable development of the EPCOS Group.
