Global Moving Services is proud to announce that we are now officially a Signatory of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), joining a network of over 13,000 companies and 3,000 non-businesses who are committed to building a sustainable future.
This means that Global Moving Services will work towards a long future of sustainability guided by the values of the UNGC and focusing on the 10 principles:
Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
Principle 2: make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.
Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
Principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labour; and
Principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
By incorporating these 10 principles of the UN Global Compact into our daily operating strategies, policies and procedures we are establishing a culture of integrity in our workplace. This not only empowers our basic responsibilities to people and our planet but also sets us en route for long-term sustainable success.
Whether you are an individual looking to moving abroad or a global HR department requiring corporate relocation services, these 10 principles will help to reassure you that you are choosing a responsible global moving company. Together we can take that important step to transform our world and build a sustainable future through principled business.
