As a signatory, Dufry will support the Global Compact's 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anticorruption, reinforcing the company's commitment to responsible business practices on a global basis.

Joining the UN Global Compact is a further step underlying Dufry´s commitment to sustainability. Efforts carried out to date in the areas of anticorruption and bribery, environmental sustainability, code of conduct and many other initiatives, were already closely aligned with the principles of the UN Global Compact. By joining this initiative, Dufry shows its intent to further evolve and foster sustainability and to make the UN Global Compact and its principles part of the strategy, culture and day to day operations of the company.

Dufry will also continue to engage in collaborative projects, which advance the broader development goals of the United Nations, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals. In this context, Dufry has been supporting the awareness campaign #YouNeedToKnow since 2016 and promoting the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) reaching over 55 million people across more than 30 airports worldwide.

“We are delighted to have been admitted to join more than 9,500 companies and groups in over 160 countries in the world´s largest corporate sustainability initiative” – said Julian Díaz, CEO of Dufry. “Our support of the UN Global Compact principles is both a formal expression of Dufry´s commitment to sustainability and a new milestone in our objective of creating a sustainable business.”
