UN Global Compact

The United Nations (UN) Global Compact was proposed by the Secretary General of the UN in 1999 and consists of 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption. The top management of companies that become signatories to the Global Compact pledge their commitment and, within the scope of their enterprises, promise to work consistently to achieve the objectives espoused under the 10 principles. Since signing the Global Compact in June 2011, Yamaha has actively worked to cooperate with the Global Compact Network Japan in conducting subcommittees.
