Celebrate with Mean Communications as we join the UN Global Compact and pledge to adopt socially responsible policies!
What is the UN Global Compact?
The United Nations Global Compact is a UN initiative created to encourage businesses to uphold sustainable and socially responsible practices. Announced in 1999, the initiative urges businesses to improve in areas including human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. The initiative also provides a framework that companies like us can implement!
Mean Communications is proud to stand in support of the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact. We truly believe that being a socially responsible business is the best way to create the change in the world.
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.
