delfort Joins United Nations Global Compact to Support UN Sustainability Goals

At delfort, our day-to-day business is guided by a policy of corporate responsibility which focuses on safety, sustainability, ethics, innovation, and reliability. Having recently signed the UN Global Compact, we are committed to taking a responsible, value-based, and integrated approach to addressing the Compact’s Ten Principles.

"Addressing our world's challenges requires engagement and collaboration between the private sector, NGOs, and governments," said Martin Zahlbruckner, CEO of delfort. "The Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact align perfectly with our company’s focus on combating climate change, designing products responsibly, and empowering a thriving society. We are proud to be part of this global initiative contributing to a better future.”

delfort – a partner for sustainable change

delfort drives change in the specialty paper industry, setting an example for sustainable practices. We manage CSR holistically and consider our social and environmental impacts on ecosystems, communities, and people. This starts with the responsible management and sourcing of raw materials. It continues with driving resource efficiency in our production and processes and offering eco-friendly specialty paper solutions to replace fossil-based materials. Finally, delfort works with its’ stakeholders for an inclusive and fair value chain.

In 2019, we took our commitment to people and planet to the next level and applied a holistic approach to a new set of Sustainability Goals, based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, to be reached by 2030. In the next decade, we aim to go above and beyond, creating systemic change and supporting clients in reaching their green goals. Our 2021 Corporate Social Responsibility Report explains the way we are doing so and gives an overview of our progress.

The UN Global Compact

The UN Global Compact encourages companies to align their business practices with the Compact’s Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of UN Sustainable Development Goals.

As the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, the Compact is uniquely positioned to foster collaboration and to deliver and scale solutions that address global challenges. delfort has joined a global movement of responsible enterprises, that embed sustainability into their core strategies and operations, in this commitment to improve the world.
