The United Nations Global Compact Initiative
We are delighted to announce that Cambridge Scholars Publishing Ltd. is now a registered Signatory of the United Nations Global Compact Initiative.
The Global Compact promotes corporate sustainability through a value system and a principle-based approach to business. This involves operating in a way which meets, and exceeds, our fundamental responsibilities in human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption.
By incorporating the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact into CSP’s business strategies, policies, and procedures, we will continue to develop a culture of integrity, making long-term changes for the betterment of our people and the planet.
The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact are as follows:
Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights;
Principle 2: Businesses should 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: Businesses should support the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
Principle 5: Businesses should ensure the effective abolition of child labour;
Principle 6: Businesses should fight for the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
Principle 8: Businesses should undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility;
Principle 9: Businesses should encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
We are committed to making the UN Global Compact and its principles part of the culture, operations, and strategy of our company, and to engaging in collaborative projects which advance the broader development goals of the United Nations, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Cambridge Scholars Publishing will make a clear statement of this commitment to our stakeholders and the general public.
