MAPCO has joined UN Global Compact initiatives in order to implement and commit the best practices related to Anti-corruption, Human Rights, Labour and Environment.
By incorporating the Global Compact principles into MAPCO’s corporate strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity, MAPCO is intended to uphold the basic responsibilities to people and planet, but also setting the stage for long-term sustainable growth.
Everyone at MAPCO is committed to practice the Ten Principles of UN Global Compact.
