Cardno is proud to have signed on to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) initiative. This multi-year strategy by the UN drives business awareness and action to support achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

Cardno is dedicated to making the UNGC and its Ten Principles part of the strategy, culture and day-to-day operations of our company. We will continue to engage in and deliver projects with our clients which advance the broader goals of the United Nations, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Each year, Cardno will present its Communication on Progress. It will showcase how our projects are aligned with the SDGs, our corporate sustainability and Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) goals and how we are upholding the UNGC Ten Principles. 

 “Since 2018, Cardno International Development (formerly known as Cardno Emerging Markets) has been a participant of the United Nations Global Compact. We are pleased to now leverage, extend and implement those principles to the broader Cardno group,” said Susan Reisbord, Cardno CEO and Managing Director.

“We support public accountability and transparency and therefore commit to report on progress annually according to the UN Global Compact COP policy,” she said.
