PARTICIPATION IN GLOBAL COMPACT
In March 2014 FAR srl joined Global Compact, a network of multi-stakeholders promoted by the United Nations. The network aims at bringing governments, firms, UN agencies, labour groups and civil society together in order to encourage all companies worldwide to collaborate on the creation of an economic, social and environmental scenario capable of promoting sound and sustainable economy. The network also pledges to ensure benefits are shared by all.
FAR has also adopted Global Compact principles, including them into its business policy, within the document ”Integrated safety, environment and quality policy”. Global compact binds all the bodies which have voluntarily joined the group, to promote and support such 10 principles, as well as the Millenium Development Goals established by the United Nations.
The Ten 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.
