McInnes Cooper and the United Nations Global Compact

As global trends emerge and evolve, organizations bear increasing accountability for their operational impact on people and the planet. Through mandated benchmarks and customer influence, companies must align business practices with Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards.

At McInnes Cooper, we acknowledge our responsibility to operate ethically, and we continually build capacity to serve our clients in accordance with ESG standards.

To guide us in this work and to validate our effort, McInnes Cooper leverages membership in the United National Global Compact (UN Global Compact).
