Corporate responsibility is a big issue for us. Respect for the interests of man and nature in addition to being economically minded is part of our long-term value-orientated business philosophy. macondo is the first German media company to become a member of the UN-Initiative Global Compact and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) due to this philosophy. In joining "UN Global Compact", macondo strengthened its commitment to continue to get involved in environmental and social areas aside from the economical aspects. All employees of the macondo group work to a strict editorial codex, which guarantees quality, integrity and responsibility.
The International Global Compact Yearbook is published yearly. Each edition is hardcover and bound, and printed using a high-quality four-colour offset process. Of course, the production process will be completely climate neutral and in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) criteria.
