    We hereby confirm our continued support for the Global Compact. We find the Global Compact to be a valuable tool when working towards upholding social and environmental ethics throughout all links of our work.

    We have put our effort, resources and knowledge into making the 10 principles integral part of our work, management, business strategy and operations, and to communicate them to our "stakeholders" (employees, partners, customers, government bodies and media / public).
    I herewith confirm our long term commitment to the United Nations Global Compact goals. It is our intention to support and implement the UN GC principles continuously in the future whenever and where ever it will be possible.
