Just a reminder: in spring 2019 FILM.UA Group joined UN Global Compact. This initiative is aimed at strengthening social responsibility among entrepreneurs, drawing attention to globalization and economy reconstruction and stabilization. Besides, UN Global Compact broadcasts 10 principles including those about human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption.

In October 2019 Young SDG Innovators program started, and FILM.UA Group also joined in. The task of the program is to revise traditional business models and to search for new entrepreneurship opportunities. In this program FILM.UA Group along with representatives of other companies participating in UN Global Compact are trained for ten months with leading global and Ukrainian experts as mentors.

As a result each team has to create and present its business project which will become an innovative and efficient business model for the company, helping to implement its strategy and advance Sustainable Development Goals. In May ten companies participating in the program will defend their projects at the final pitching session in Ukraine. And in summer UN Global Compact provides an opportunity to present the projects at big international summit in New York.
