Giti Tire has joined the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) as a Signatory, in its second major sustainability commitment during the month of September. As part of the United Nations, the UNGC is a highly respected and important global business agreement, that requires a commitment to adhering to the Ten Principles of the United Nations, including human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. An annual submission of the Communication on Progress (COP), as well as paid membership contribution is also a requirement for this compact.
Together with Giti’s recent acceptance as a member of GPSNR (Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber), this commitment and others separate Giti Tire among industry peers as one that has an extensive focus on social responsibility principles. In fact, this direction is not new, as Giti has for decades had a very strong involvement in conservation and CSR initiatives – particularly in the areas of environment support, education, and sustainable production. However, these new commitments are a part of the company’s expanding efforts in 2021 to take its sustainability programs to new level.
The following are the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact:
Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
Principle 2: 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: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labour; and
Principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
