Shower manufacturer Roman has joined the United Nations Global Compact network – a programme with the key aim of generating positive social impact as a business. The UNGC has well established lines of communication with key UK Government departments to help evolve the responsible business environment.
There are four core pillars within the main activity of the UNGC – the Environment; Human Rights; Labour; and Anti-Corruption – and also broader aims such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Within the four pillars of the UNGC sit 10 fundamental principles for ethical business, and these are enshrined within the conduct of the members.
Roman says these core principles firmly reinforce the policies and direction of its business, and that the international links of the UNGC are driving these principles across the business world. It emphasised that as a company, it takes sustainability extremely seriously and is committed to using recycled materials in the production process, as well as ensuring that all parts of all products can be recycled and reused back at their original value at their end of life.
David Osborne, CEO of Roman, commented: “We are delighted to join the UN Global Compact and to help drive the business case of their Sustainable Development Goals across our sector and to help partners embed them within their business processes and culture. This is a truly global initiative and one which we are honoured to be a part of.”
