NRS International submits 2017-18 UN Global Compact’s Communication on Progress28 Feb 2018
NRS International recently submitted its Communication on Progress (COP) report to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) for the period February 2017 to February 2018. The Global Compact is a UN initiative that encourages businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies, and to report on their implementation through an annual COP.
Throughout the past year, our sustainable journey continued with the alignment of our business operations with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a set of globally agreed targets to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. We have also expanded our Corporate Social Responsibility teams in Dubai and Pakistan and were nominated as Steering Committee Members of the UN Global Compact Network within the UAE for our commitment to sustainability, diversity and female empowerment, and core business values. We adhere to the UNGC’s principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions to embed them throughout our operations and supply chain.
According to Global Compact’s differentiation level, our report meets all requirements and qualifies for the Global Compact Active Level. We aim to improve policy implementation and increase transparency to achieve the Global Compact Advanced Level by February 2019.
