United Nations Global Compact
Participating in the United Nations Global Compact
Rengo signed the United Nations Global Compact pact in November 2009.
Proposed by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the UN Global Compact was launched in 2000 as a program that calls on companies and other organizations worldwide to support and actively implement the Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption.
Rengo, with its origins in the production of environmentally friendly corrugated materials, has been committed to both people and the environment; and has sought, as The General Packaging Industry, to provide customers with value-added packaging, while contributing to society by optimizing the flow of products through the distribution process.
Rengo fully supports the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and pledges to carry out our duties as a good corporate citizen in accordance with the spirit of those principles.
