“I am driven by the vision of how today’s solutions can contribute to securing a sustainable world for future generations.”
— Joerg Walden, CEO and founder of iPoint-systems gmbh
iPoint places sustainability at the forefront of everything that we do. We do not only support and accompany other companies on their way to sustainability. We also strive to embed sustainability into our corporate strategy, organizational culture, and everyday operations.
Applying principles of responsible management, supporting and respecting the protection of human rights, upholding employee rights, and implementing environmental protection, are therefore integral elements of iPoint’s corporate strategy, policies, and procedures.
In our annual Communication on Progress (CoP) report for the UN Global Compact, published on August 7th, 2019, we describe the progress in our actions to continually improve the integration of the Global Compact and its ten principles into our business strategy, culture, and daily operations.
iPoint is a proud signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest and most widely embraced voluntary corporate sustainability initiative. As such, iPoint has committed to aligning our corporate strategy, day-to-day operations, and organizational culture with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption, and to take actions that advance societal goals, in particular in relation to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By doing so, we aim to underline our commitment both as a company and a corporate citizen to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable future.
