Member companies agree to maintain these principles as they sell into worldwide markets, so that expansion does not come at the expense of local people and environments.
The Ten Principles cover a range of issues, from human rights to environmental responsibility.
“CardLogix has always had a strong commitment to corporate and world responsibility”, said Bruce Ross, CEO. And, as we expand into multiple foreign markets, such as Africa and the Middle East, the Global Compact further affirms our dedication to several key principles”.
CardLogix progress towards realizing the Ten Principles is measured yearly, with a formal Communication of Progress (COP) submitted to the UN, in order to maintain its membership. The principles cover four areas: Human Rights, Labor, Environment, and Anti-corruption. For more information about the UN Global Compact, go to http://www.unglobalcompact.org
