Secmentis has been, since 2021, a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). We remain deeply committed to the UNGC's Ten Principles, a corporate responsibility initiative built around universal principles on Human Rights, Labour, the Environment, and Anti-Corruption.
The UNGC Ten Principles are the following:
Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights.
Businesses should make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.
Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining.
Businesses should uphold the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour.
Businesses should uphold the effective abolition of child labour.
Businesses should uphold the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges.
Businesses should undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility.
Businesses should encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
The UN Global Compact's Ten Principles are derived from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization's Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.
