BEMA is a member and adheres to the The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, and stresses member training and education in the Principle 10 as part of our professionalism and credibility to our members and communities that we assist and serve.
Corporate sustainability starts with a company’s value system and a principled approach to doing business.
This means operating in ways that, at a minimum, meet fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Responsible businesses enact the same values and principles wherever they have a presence, and know that good practices in one area do not offset harm in another.
By incorporating the Global Compact principles into strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity, companies are not only upholding their basic responsibilities to people and planet, but also setting the stage for long-term success.
