Segezha Group joins UN Global Compact

Segezha Group, a subsidiary of Sistema PJSFC and a leading Russian vertically integrated holding company in the forest industry performing a full cycle of operations from logging to advanced wood processing, has joined the United Nations Global Compact (“UN Global Compact” or “Compact”), the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.

With this commitment, Segezha Group is demonstrating its long-term support of the Sustainable Development Goals as outlined in the UN Global Compact’s ten principles.

“Segezha Group is fully aligned with the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles, not only in word but in deed; these principles are integrated into the Group’s policies, strategic initiatives and day-to-day work. Joining the Global Compact is not simply a chance to share our positive experience internationally, but to learn first-hand from our peers about best international practices in sustainability,” said Managing Director for Government Relations and Forestry Policy Nikolay Ivanov.
