With the growing concerns for climate change and sustainability, a business is now expected to manage its impact on the environment. Thus, commitment to the environment management has become an integral part of business operations.
Organisations are responding in various ways: many leading companies publish environmental and sustainability reports. Perhaps the most tangible evidence of an organisation’s environmental focus and effort is to have a commitment to UN Global Compact Ten Principles. By incorporating the ISO 14001 and the Principles of the UN Global Compact into strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity. Companies are not only upholding their basic responsibilities to people and the planet, but also setting the stage for long-term success.
