Supporting our corporate values.
As social, political and global economic challenges (and opportunities) affect business more than ever before, companies recognize the need to partner with governments, civil society, labor and the United Nations. The growing need to establish these initiatives in business is reflected in the Global Compact’s rapid growth. With over 9,500 corporate participants and stakeholders from over 160+ countries, it is the largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative in the world.
BDP is an active member in the UN Global Compact (UNGC). The UNGC is a voluntary strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. By doing so, business, as a primary driver of globalization, can help ensure that markets, commerce, technology, and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere.
The UN Global Compact aims to mobilize a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world we want.
To make this happen, the UN Global Compact supports companies to:
1. Do business responsibly by aligning their strategies and operations withTen Principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption; and
2. Take strategic actions to advance broader societal goals, such as theUN Sustainable Development Goals, with emphasis on collaboration and innovation.
BDP is proud to participate in this program, which further highlights our corporate value that ethics not only matter, but are at the forefront of daily business operations. As a participant in the UNGC, we disclose our progress on the implementation and activities of the Ten Principles. This Communication on Progress increases transparency and accountability, and pushes us to continue to improve on our performance.
By doing business with us, you have a partner who is fully committed to holding our employees to the highest of ethical standards, and practicing good corporate citizenship in every facet of our business operations.
