Leading spend management solution provider, Ivalua, furthers its commitment to ESG by joining United Nations (UN) Global Compact

In an announcement made by Ivalua, the leading provider of global spend management cloud solutions has joined the United Nations (UN) Global Compact. 

By joining the world’s largest voluntary corporate sustainability initiative, Ivalua will translate its beliefs into a comprehensive and actionable framework, and extend its commitment by aligning its operations and strategies with the UN’s ‘10 Principles’ relating to human rights, labour, environmental practises, and anti-corruption.

This initiative will also see Ivalua committing to taking strategic actions towards the advancement of broader societal goals outlined by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

 

“At Ivalua we strive to make a positive social and economic impact, not just through our core business, but also through the way we operate, viewing these as interconnected objectives,”  said David Khuat-Duy, Ivalua’s founder and CEO. 

“Joining the UN Global Compact provides Ivalua with a proven framework to guide our ESG strategy. As we strengthen our global sustainability platform, Ivalua’s most impactful contribution will emerge from the successful implementation of our spend management solutions with some of the world’s leading brands. The way we spend matters, and we are collectively committed to long-term sustainable growth.”
