Did you know that Ducere is a member of the UN Global Compact? Since September of last year, we have been a proud advocate of the Global Compact, and we’re committed to upholding the values and principles of this fantastic program.
The UN Global Compact was first announced by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in an address to the World Economic Forum on January 31, 1999, and officially launched at UN Headquarters in New York on July 26, 2000. Every signatory to the compact must comply with the four main considerations that businesses should uphold, which are human rights, labour standards, environment and anti-corruption.
Ducere’s relationship with the UN is a compelling one. Mr. Michael Andrew, a Ducere Global Faculty Member, is in fact a steering Committee Member in Australia of the United Nations Global Compact for the environment. Should any changes arise in the compact, Mr. Andrew is required to oversee the developments and approve any necessary strategic adjustments.
The UN requires that corporations strive to implement the 10 principles of the Global Compact. If you would like to see our progress, you can view it here:
