Ingenta, a leader in making published content accessible to readers around the world, has signed on to the United Nations Global Compact. Ingenta has agreed to support the UN’s Ten Principles for environmental responsibility, human rights, labor and anti-corruption in business conduct at the local, national, and global levels. Ingenta will report on its progress to stakeholders each year, and post a copy on the UN Global Compact’s website.
Joining the UN Global Compact brings Ingenta’s business practices into closer alignment with customers, including international inter-governmental organisations such as the United Nations and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), as well as non-profit scholarly publishing societies.
Ingenta’s commitment to the voluntary initiative grows out of its dedication to help customers make content available to people with reading barriers, and to underserved communities, including in the Global South. It also builds on efforts over the last three years to lessen Ingenta’s carbon output and dependence on non-renewable resources, by reducing four global offices down to one remaining UK office, cutting back substantially on corporate travel, and increasing remote work options on a permanent basis.
