Following the Commitment Letter signed by the Vice President Mr Paolo Barilla, on December 15th, 2011, Barilla was officially welcome in the UN Global Compact, the world largest Corporate Responsibility voluntary Initiative launched by the former United Nations Secretary - General Kofi Annan in 1999 and now lead by H.E. Ban Ki - Moon.
The company believes the inclusion in the UN Global Compact will constitute a great opportunity to share its experience in the field of sustainable business with other companies, Institutions and civil society worldwide. Meanwhile, it is convinced that this could create a long term business advantage in partnering with our suppliers and to meet People's needs in Barilla's operating countries.
As a participant of the UN Global Compact, Barilla will also support the Italian Global Compact Local Network.
