Navistar joins UN Global Compact

Navistar's logo in white and blue.Navistar Inc. is now part of the United Nations Global Compact, the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. 

"Navistar and its employees are proud of the strides we have made towards building sustainability into our products and business practices," says Mathias Carlbaum, Navistar's president and CEO. "The launch of the International eMV Series and the next generation IC Bus electric CE Series school bus, as well as our work in energy intensity reduction are just a couple of the many steps we've taken to ensure we're responsible stewards of the environment. Joining the UN Global Climate Compact is something I take great pride in both professionally and personally." 

Launched in 2000, it has more than 15,000 companies on board and more than 3,800 non-business signatories. More than 160 companies and 69 local networks are represented. 

The compact is a call to companies to align their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, Navistar says. It also calls companies to support UN goals and issues in the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which include climate action, good health and wellbeing, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, responsible consumption and production, and industry innovation and infrastructure. 

It provides Navistar with a framework to contribute actions towards broader goals, the company says, as it continues to pursue sustainable mobility. It is working toward decarbonization and circular business in its products, operations and supply chains, the company says. Navistar recently introduced a new code of conduct that relates to supplier and business partner due diligence and human rights, reducing emissions from Navistar's supply chain, and commitments to sustainable sourcing of raw materials.
