More than 15,000 companies and 3000 non-profit organizations from over 160 countries have signed the initiative to date.

A main focus of the UN Global Compact is on the enforcement and implementation of human and employee rights, environmental protection, and the prevention of corruption. By becoming a participant, Vetter gains access to the large network of companies and organizations that are committed to the same corporate goals. Vetter will submit a publicly viewable annual progress report, which will serve as evidence of transparency and accountability.

"As a family-owned business in the healthcare sector, we bear great responsibility,” said Henryk Badack, senior vice president, technical service and internal project management, in a company press release. “And we believe in the power of cooperation. The UN Global Compact combines these two approaches very well and is also a strong commitment to shared values and goals across business sectors and national borders."
