United Nations Global Compact

Since 2020, Schroders has been committed to the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.

The UN Global Compact asks companies to align their operations and strategies to ten universally accepted principles. These principles represent the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were set up to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet.

Four fundamental responsibilities

The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact relate to four key areas which we have aligned our corporate responsibility strategies and operations to. In addition to anti-corruption and human rights, our aim is to help end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet.

People (labour)

We endeavour to improve the futures of those around us – whether it’s embracing our own people, or creating a lasting positive impact in our society.
