Epson confirms commitment to UN Global Compact

Epson has reiterated its commitment to the United Nations Global Compact by signing the Statement from Business Leaders for Renewed Global Cooperation.

The Statement from Business Leaders for Renewed Global Cooperation was announced as a new  policy of the UN in September, and was issued to mark the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations and the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Global Compact. Signatories commit to operating in a spirit of global cooperation, accountability, corporate ethics and transparency, and to upholding the following points:

  • Demonstrate ethical leadership and good governance through values-based strategies, policies, operations and relationships when engaging with all stakeholders

  • Invest in addressing systemic inequalities and injustices through inclusive, participatory and representative decision making at all levels of our business

  • Partner with the UN, Government and civil society to strengthen access to justice, ensure accountability and transparency, provide legal certainty, promote equality and respect human rights

In making that commitment, we also call on Governments to:


  • Protect human rights, ensure peace and security, and uphold the rule of law so that businesses, individuals and societies can flourish

  • Create an enabling environment to serve the interests of people and planet, prosperity and purpose, through strengthened international cooperation and national legal frameworks

  • Enhance multilateralism and global governance to combat corruption, build resilience and achieve the SDGs

As a member of society, Epson takes an uncompromising approach to socially responsible corporate conduct in areas such as compliance, human rights, environmental action, workforce diversity, and supply chain management. Epson takes these and other social issues seriously and are working toward solutions.

The company also aspires to make Epson an indispensable company through the practice of ethical corporate conduct and by playing a central role in realising a better world through the products and services we provide.
