SYNLAB joins the United Nations Global Compact initiative

​We are pleased to announce that we have joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative — a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices.

Together with more than 9,500 companies and 3,000 non-business signatories SYNLAB will take action in support of UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world and is a call to companies to align operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

SYNLAB’s membership in the UN Global Compact initiative underlines and goes hand in hand with our global ESG priorities:

  • SYNLAB:Green: reducing the environmental impact of every test SYNLAB delivers and supporting its global ambition of carbon neutrality and environmental protection.
  • SYNLAB: Care: creating the greatest positive outcomes in the communities in which SYNLAB works through innovative, high-quality diagnostics and empowering its diverse employees.
  • SYNLAB: Citizenship: operating with the highest standards of governance and compliance in order to be a responsible corporate citizen.
