The Spanish Global Compact Network has renewed half of the positions of its Executive Committee, whose mission is to promote the organization and approve its strategy and management, among other key aspects. At the 16th General Assembly, Josep Presseguer, general director of Fruits de Ponent, has been appointed Vocal of the Executive Committee of the Spanish Network, the largest and one of the most active of the Global Compact of the United Nations at the international level, with more than 1,600 adhered entities. Fruits de Ponent will thus participate in the management and representation of this UN initiative in Spain, the most important in terms of business sustainability in the world, actively contributing to promoting the incorporation of the Ten Principles of the Global Compact and the 2030 Agenda into the strategies of Spanish companies.
