In 2009 Isdefe signed on to the United Nations' Global Compact, an international initiative that encourages companies to commit to ensuring that their strategy and their daily operations comply with the ten basic principles of conduct and action in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. By creating a global corporate citizenship, this initiative aims to reconcile the demands of civil society, of the third sector, of unions and of educational institutions with the interests and processes of corporate activity.
