Vallourec is committed to the Global Compact


The Global Compact

Vallourec has made an undertaking to promote and uphold the ten fundamental principles of the United Nations compact relating to basic human and labour rights, environmental protection and anti-corruption.

Signing up to the Global Compact illustrates the Group's determination to enhance its efforts relating to ethics, labour relations and the environment. The sustainable development report describes Vallourec's ambitious objectives and outlines the practical progress achieved by the Group's 22,000 employees.


In 2010, the Group is focusing on behavioural best practices, by rolling out safety enhancement initiatives (Cap Ten Safe project) and implementing a code of ethics.
