TABLE OF ASSOCIATION BETWEEN GLOBAL COMPACT AND GRI INDICATORS

Global Compact is an initiative launched by the United Nations Secretary-General at the conclusion of the World Economic Forum in 1999. He appealed to world economy leaders to support the 9 universal principles concerning human rights, work and the environment; in 2004 a tenth principle was added: the fight against corruption.

The network of organizations and companies supporting this initiative has grown ever since; Acea signed the ten principles in 2007, renewing its commitment year after year.

The companies involved are required to write a Communication on Progress Report concerning the progress made and initiatives undertaken or to illustrate compliance between the principles of Global Compact and GRI Indicators in their Sustainability Report in order to better illustrate their corporate citizenship. This year, Acea has decided to illustrate its compliance through a Table of Association.
