• Six Ambitions Based on the UN’s SDGs and Included in our Strategic Program

    EDF Group

    In 2016, we decided on six corporate responsibility goals. They mark out the path we have set for ourselves to achieve our CAP 2030 strategy and take into account the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) laid down by the United Nations. Although the SDGs are not aimed directly at companies, we firmly believe that these goals cannot be met without the active contribution of business organizations. We fully embrace the global approach of the SDGs, while remaining aware that we are but one of the many actors in this movement.  more[...]

  • “The only kind of mission statements that truly support a company’s development are those that company employees embody”

    To move forward, every company needs a compass – one that does not just orient the company to profit targets, but also to morals. Without this, one faces the threat of incalculable reputation risk, as currently can be seen at Volkswagen. But how does one get mission statements and role models up and running in a company? To answer this question, we spoke with Kai M. Beckmann, who works on the challenges of corporate responsibility within economic, legal and social realms (Governance, Risk & Compliance) at Roever Broenner Susat Mazars.  more[...]

  • Introduction to Voluntary Sustainability Standards

    Kristin Komives, ISEAL Alliance
    ISEAL Alliance

    Private, voluntary sustainability standards are an innovative, market-based approach to promoting sustainable production and business practices. Adoption of these sustainability standards is intended to be voluntary: The standards are not created, run, or required by governments or government regulation. Instead, the system for voluntary sustainability standards are nongovernment initiatives that seek to drive sustainable production and consumption by creating a market demand for sustainable products, and a supply to meet that demand. They help buyers (both consumers and businesses) identify sustainably-produced products, and they guide producers, forest managers, mine and tourism operators, and factory owners and others in their choice of sustainable practices.  more[...]

  • Principles of Legal Compliance

    Remigiusz Skiba, Bosch
    Bernhard Schwager
    Bosch Group

    Companies invest a great deal of effort in putting written principles and value systems into practice. This might be in relation to customer orientation, openness, respect, or honesty, for example. If they are to become orientation points in everyday practice, they must be implemented and made routine by means of guidelines, processes, incentive systems, and other organizational measures. But this is only the first step. Leadership behavior, the example set by top management, and clear communication of the culture of values are of the essence.  more[...]

  • Responsible Lobbying

    Dr Stephanos Anastasiadis, Royal Holloway, University of London
    Dr Sigrun M. Wagner, Royal Holloway, University of London

    Lobbyists paying elected representatives to place questions in the UK parliament. Arms manufacturers giving South African officials BMWs in exchange for armaments contracts. Smoke-filled back rooms featuring stuffed brown envelopes. No wonder lobbying has a bad name. But these are not images of lobbying: They depict corruption, albeit in a policymaking setting. These actions are morally suspect and usually illegal. They also contravene the UN Global Compact: Principle 10 requires the combating of corruption.  more[...]

As a fur auction house, Saga Furs promotes innovative transparency: upstream at farms where the company sources only quality European-produced pelts, and downstream among partners in creative phases resulting in fashion.  more[...]
