Sustainability

Bong and Global Compact

The Bong Group, including Bong Retail Solutions is a participant in the UN Global Compact. The Global Compact is the world’s largest voluntary corporate citizenship initiative. As participants in the UN Global Compact, we are committed to incorporating the initiative and its principles into our strategy and corporate culture. We report on our adherence to these principles in our annual Sustainability Report which is also a “Communication on Progress” according to Global Compact.

We are proud to confirm our continued support of Global Compact’s ten principles and our commitment to align our business strategy, culture and daily operations with them.

The principles are derived from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption. Find out more about UN Global Compact here.

In 2017 we adopted new policies to increase the awareness of our employees and those whom we do business with about the responsibility we have to integrate Global Compact’s principles in our business strategy, culture and daily operations. Read more about our Code of Conduct and policies here.

In our first annual Communication on Progress, part of Bongs Annual Report for 2017, we describe our actions to reduce the environmental impact of our own business and that of our suppliers, as well as how we conduct an ethically sound business and create a safe work environment where diversity and equal treatment is a natural part.
