ATRenew Joins the United Nations Global Compact
ATRenew Inc., a leading technology-driven pre-owned consumer electronics transactions and services platform in China, announced that it has joined the United Nations Global Compact (the "UNGC") initiative, a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible business practices.
Launched in 2000, the UNGC is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 15,000 companies and 4,000 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries.
The UNGC is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption and to take action in support of United Nations goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals.
Mr. Kerry Xuefeng Chen, Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of ATRenew, commented, "We are proud to join the United Nations Global Compact initiative, reaffirming our steadfast commitment to ethical practices, sustainability, and social responsibility as a core component of our corporate strategy.
"We recognise and integrate the UNGC's Ten Principles into our day-to-day operations, and we are eager to make a meaningful contribution to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals. We see our membership as a supplement to our existing mission of creating positive change and building a more prosperous and sustainable world."
