UNGC Ten Principles
ADEC Innovations has been an active member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) since July 2014. We have been consistently reporting our commitment, progress, and disclosures in advancing the Ten UNGC Principles on human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. We respond to environmental and social challenges and drive positive impact to the economy, environment, and society through our wide array of assurance solutions.
ADEC’s 2020 Sustainability Report is based on a GC Advanced Level of COP which entails a more comprehensive type of disclosures. The advanced level of reporting requires a self-assessment based on additional advanced criteria for communication of UNGC. This is on top of the minimum requirements cited in the COP Policy.

Global Sustainable Goals
ADEC Innovations supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals by helping our clients develop a greener supply chain, heighten sustainability in their operations, capitalise in greener forms of investment, integrate sustainability and resiliency on how they actualise their vision, and monitor their progress for evidence-based decision-making. We work hand in hand with our clients in building resilient organisations through our assurance solutions, thereby allowing optimum operations in the midst of crisis and unforeseen disruption.
In 2019, the ADEC Global Group focused on the advancement of 13 out of the 17 global sustainable goals. From these, three SDGs had been adopted by ADEC Innovations for its local operation:
The launching of the Paris Agreement in 2015 has escalated the urgency of member countries working together to limit the global temperature increment to 1.5°C.
