Calix joins the United Nations Global Compact

Solving Global Challenges

Audrey Barucchi \ December 20, 2020

The United Nations Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, driven by the realisation that companies play a crucial part in enforcing human rights and building a more sustainable world. The UN Global Compact’s mission is to mobilise a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world we want.

To make this more tangible and make it happen, the UN Global Compact is focusing on four areas; human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption, which encompasses Ten Principles that we have agreed to adhere to.

At Calix, our mission is to Solve Global Challenges and we are driven to use our unique skills to repair, preserve and prevent future harm to our planet.

The United Nations General Assembly set 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in 2015, which are intended to be achieved by the year 2030. Calix touches all 17 SDG’s through innovation, development and partnership initiatives, day-to-day operations, and social investment opportunities.

We are currently reviewing Calix’s impacts on the SDG’s in an internal workshop, with the aim to identify the goals where we believe we can have the most meaningful impact.

Our long-term vision is to become a leading global innovator of industrial solutions for the environment, with a focus on four overlapping pillars of sustainability: Climate, Food, Water and Energy.

“At Calix, we are committed to make the UN Global Compact and its Ten Principles part of our strategy, company culture and day-to-day operations, and we are proud of formally signing the pledge as a natural next step on our journey towards sustainability.”

We look forward to working and engaging with partners, communities, and industry groups to maximise positive outcomes, and will continue to deepen our understanding of sustainable development.

Because there’s only one Earth, Mars is for quitters.
