UpWind Solutions, Inc. is a wind industry third-party provider of asset management operations and maintenance services (O&M) with 2.5+ GW in their fleet. In April, they joined the UN’s voluntary corporate citizenship initiative Global Compact to help maintain high standards for social responsibility while positioning themselves on a global scale. UpWind supports the 10 principles of the Global Compact with respect to human rights, labor standards, protection of the environment, and anti-corruption.
“UpWind is committed to making the Global Compact and its principles part of the strategy, culture and day-to-day operations of our company, and to engaging in collaborative projects which advance the broader development goals of the United Nations, particularly the Millennium Development Goals” said Peter Wells, Chief Executive Officer at UpWind Solutions, Inc.
One key requirement of participating in the Global Compact is the annual submission of a Communication on Progress (COP) that will report on UpWind’s initiatives and progress towards implementing the 10 principles.
