As Sustainability and Climate are strategic issues for Allegro, the responsibility for defining strategic directions in this area lies with the Management Committee composed of the CEO and Board of Directors. The Sustainability Team, supported by dedicated managers and employees from the various departments within the organization, is responsible for the operational management of this area.
The management team oversees matters of sustainable development and climate, especially by monitoring and supervising the company’s CSR & Sustainability Strategy. At the same time, since climate and environmental risks are subject to risk management and the Risk Management Policy, all Allegro.eu employees are responsible for risk identification and reporting. The role of the Board of Directors is to supervise corporate risk, define the scope of risk management, define directions for the development of the risk management system and determine risk appetite levels.
In 2021, Allegro.pl joined the UN Global Compact, an initiative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations that brings together companies and institutions which consider sustainable development important. By joining the UN Global Compact, the company pledged to implement policies and global UN initiatives, focusing on environmental protection and counteracting the climate crisis. It is also a commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, as defined by the United Nations in its 2030 Agenda. Joining the UN Global Compact is a testament to our genuine commitment to the CSR & Sustainability strategy and our environmental pledge.
We educate sellers on sustainable development and implement the climate agenda in our supply chain. Global Compact brings together over 12,000 companies and 3,000 institutions from 160 countries. This means that Allegro is joining a large international community, for whom the conversation about sustainable development is extremely important.
As a UNGC participant, we report on our progress on implementing the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact
