United Nations Global Compact
4finance joined the Global Compact as part of our commitment to the UN’s Ten Principles and our support of the UN’s Strategic Development Goals. Our participation helps inform our broader sustainability efforts, our desire to serve our customers well, contribute to the societies we operate in, and to act as a responsible employer. 
4finance Holdings has been a signatory to the UNGC since June 2023.
The UN has invited companies around the world to commit to its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to further Environment, Social and Governance objectives. The scheme requires a commitment from 4finance, and an annual update on progress towards goals.
