UN Global Compact

 

UN Global Compact

In 1999, UN Secretary-General Kofi A. Annan challenged world business leaders to “embrace and enact” the Global Compact, both in their individual corporate practices and by supporting appropriate public policies.

Over the years, Tweezerman has demonstrated its commitment to corporate citizenship in the areas of human rights, labor rights and environmental sustainability. Tweezerman International will continue to support and strive to meet the ideals of the compact in both our domestic and international operations.
