As a participant, VBV - Vorsorgekasse AG commits to:

- set in motion changes to business operations so that the UN Global Compact and the Ten Principles become part of strategy, culture and day-to-day operations, including in subsidiaries and the supply chain;

- advocate the UN Global Compact and the Ten Principles via available communications channels;

- communicate annually with our stakeholders on efforts to implement the UN Global Compact principles, and post this Communication on Progress (COP) on the UN Global Compact website. Failure to post a COP annually will result in loss of an "active" status in the UN Global Compact, and eventual removal from the initiative.

- promoting the SDG's through various channels
