“Parimatch Ukraine” became the first bookmaker company in Ukraine to join the "UN Global Compact" network

Parimatch Ukraine is the only legal bookmaker in Ukraine, and the company's entry into the network will set a trend for betting operators that will appear on the Ukrainian market later.

The main areas of sustainable development of the company are:

  • ensuring healthy lifestyles and well-being of people;
  • promoting sustainable economic growth;
  • productive employment and decent work;
  • providing quality education and promoting learning opportunities, 
  • combating climate change and its consequences;
  •  revitalizing work within the framework of the global partnership for sustainable development.

The company already implements large-scale projects in the field of sport and entertainment, develops talents within the company, as well as innovative approaches to create comfortable working conditions. In addition, Parimatch Ukraine is the largest investor in national and regional sports.

The UN Global Compact is an initiative aimed at promoting and developing corporate social responsibility. Companies that join the Global Compact network voluntarily agree to implement the ten principles of human rights, work standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption in their activities.

Support for sports, focus on the principles of responsible play, constructive relations with government institutions have become a good reason for Parimatch Ukraine to join the UN Global Compact.

CEO of Parimatch UkraineNatalia Gilevich announced the company’s readiness to comply with the principles of the Global Compact, developing and implementing the best social and corporate practices. The principled position of the company is to work legally and transparently, pay taxes, create new job opportunities, change the perception of gambling and the image of betting companies.

Systematic support of the sports sector, adherence to the principles of responsible gambling, development of partnerships with the state, legal operators of gambling and society — all this was taken into account when considering an application for accession to the UN Global Compact.
