Priority Goal 16
The aim of UN Sustainability Goal 16 is to "Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels." At its essence, that means operating:
Transparently and honestly.
Inclusively and fairly.
In a non-discriminatory manner.
We've chosen to start by focussing on ensuring that all our staff and associates are pre-vetted, and fully educated on ethics within the workplace, via a combination of training and policies.
We are in the process of finalising our specific targets for this goal. Please check back shortly.
To support this goal we are focussing on doing business ethically and inclusively. Specifically, we are implementing Anti Money Laundering and Anti-Bribery policies and training programs for our staff and sub-contractors, and measuring our ethics and inclusiveness by surveying our end-to-end supply chain.
We will report our performance metrics once we have published our measurable targets. Please check back shortly.
We have adopted ongoing practices for communicating the support of our chosen UN Sustainability Goals to our supply chain, along with the importance that other organisations do the same. By supply chain, we mean ourselves (our staff and associates), our suppliers, our partners and our customers.
Educational activities that we have embarked upon to date include:
Internal communications to staff on our goal priorities - reach: all staff
Sustainability monthly newsletter articles - reach: staff, associates, suppliers, partners, customers
Numerous sustainability social media posts - reach: all followers
We have also recently launched a new Ethical IT Managed Service, with sustainable IT at its core, which will enable us to take customers beyond education and into action.
