Sharing our progress

United Nations Global Compact commitment

The United Nations has developed a global agreement, or compact, to help businesses align their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. TELUS supports the compact and we align our sustainability report with its principles. We became a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in 2010 and continued our support throughout 2018.

As a Visionary Supporter of the GCNC, TELUS continues to demonstrate our commitment to the Principles of the UNGC. The GCNC offers Canadian business and non-business sectors a unique opportunity to learn and exchange best practices in corporate responsibility within the network and amongst global peers. In doing so, we build the capacity of the Canadian corporate sector, empowering companies to embrace the UNGC’s principles within their national and global operations.

Specifically in 2018, TELUS presented during several webinars hosted by the GCNC and at the SDG Business Forum on topics such as sustainability reporting and supporting Sustainable Development Goals.
