Parimatch Ukraine is the first betting company to join the UN Global Compact
Parimatch Ukraine has become a new party to the UN Global Compact and the only licensed bookmaker in Ukraine to commit to the 10 Principles of the Global Compact. The company already implements large-scale projects in the field of sports and entertainment, develops talents within the company, as well as introduces innovative approaches to creating comfortable working conditions. In addition, Parimatch Ukraine is the largest investor in national and regional sports.
Systematic support for sports, adherence to the principles of responsible gambling, building partnerships with the state, legal gambling operators and society – all this was taken into account when considering the application for accession to the UN Global Compact.
Natalia Gilevych, CEO of Parimatch Ukraine, commented on an important decision for the company:
We fully share the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact and are ready to cooperate in the development and implementation of best social and corporate practices, in particular in the gambling industry. The status of the first and only legal bookmaker in Ukraine requires responsibility, and the decision to become a party to the UN Global Compact is a significant step towards sustainable development. Our principled position – to work legally and transparently, to pay taxes, to create new jobs, to change the perception of gambling and the image of bookmakers – has found a response in the activities of the UN Global Compact.
The main directions of the company’s sustainable development are ensuring a healthy lifestyle and well-being, promoting sustainable economic growth and productive employment and decent work, providing quality education and promoting learning opportunities, combating climate change and its consequences, intensifying global partnership for sustainable development.
Tetyana Saharuk, Director General of the UN Global Compact in Ukraine , shared her views on company’s joining:
Parimatch Ukraine is a very unique company for the Ukrainian market, and it as the only legal bookmaker sets the vector of movement for those who will come to the now legal sphere of betting for it. We are convinced that sustainable development contributes to the growth of business in any direction, and we are glad to have a leading company in our field among the participants of the UN General Assembly in Ukraine.
