The Compact was set up to develop, implement and adopt sustainable and corporate social responsibility policies and encompasses 9,500 companies and 3,000 associations from 160 countries.

Through its R&D hub in Treviso, Italy, Targa said it will provide its clients with technology to implement “next-generation mobility solutions that guarantee a lower environmental impact.” 

Targa’s CEO, Nicola De Mattia, said; “The decision to join the United Nations Global Compact program is part of a larger framework of choices that drive us towards a more sustainable, inclusive, people-centric company model, promoting a culture of corporate citizenship”

The Compact promotes “ambitious collaborative projects to develop the ten universally shared principles [in four key areas of human rights, labour, anti-corruption and the environment,] and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.”

Joining the compact “renews and strengthens” Targa’s commitment to integrate core principles related to respecting human rights, work standards, environmental protection and fighting corruption to its strategy and daily operations, the company said.
