Our ESG Policies and Standards

Our ESG Policy — together with our Environmental Policy, Human Rights Policy, Modern Slavery Statement, Code of Conduct, Third Party Code of Conduct, and other operational policies — demonstrates our commitment to ESG practices and operations. To remain focused on the ESG areas we’re best positioned to impact, UKG conducts global ESG materiality assessments in partnership with an independent, impartial third-party provider. These assessments shape our strategy, inform our goals, and guide our current and future business operations.
