April 21, 2021 – SES today announced it has joined the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, underscoring the company’s purpose-led Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) programme. By committing to the UN Global Compact framework, SES is now firmly aligning its long-standing societal and environmental impact efforts to the company’s purpose – doing the extraordinary in space to deliver amazing experiences everywhere on earth – and delivering on its ambitions to provide cloud-enabled, satellite-based intelligent connectivity and to make a difference worldwide. The UN Global Compact is a corporate initiative that encourages both business and non-business organisations to establish and define strategies, policies and procedures aligned with the 10 principles of the Global Compact. SES is well aligned with these principles and will report on their execution. Under this new commitment, SES will evaluate its existing ESG activities while aligning them with the company’s purpose and ambitions, as well as with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, to ensure that SES is making the necessary positive social and environmental impact on the world. SES will also develop a formal impact strategy that will determine how to adopt best-in-class ESG policies while delivering services to its customers. It will also produce ESG reports that adhere to international standards to highlight the extent of SES’s impact.
