We also continuously align and evolve our sustainability priorities and ambitions with international frameworks, such as SBTi’s Corporate Net Zero Standard and the International Labour Organization (ILO) Core Conventions. Joining the UNGC reinforces our dedication to responsible business action in line with global sustainability goals. As a UNGC participant, Ansell will continue to annually communicate our commitment to support and uphold the Ten Principles and our progress against responsible business and broader societal goals in our sustainability reports.
