Categories: News

San Diego, California, USA, February 29th, 2024 – Paramount Transportation Systems proudly announces its recent commitment as a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact in 2023, marking a significant stride towards fostering sustainable business practices within the organization.

The United Nations Global Compact is a voluntary initiative that encourages businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies, aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. These principles are derived from: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.

The ten principles of the UN Global Compact are:

Human Rights: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights and ensure they are not complicit in human rights abuses.

Labor: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining, eliminate forced labor, abolish child labor, and eliminate discrimination in employment and occupation.

Environment: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges, undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility, and encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.

Anti-Corruption: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.

In addition to these principles, Paramount Transportation Systems acknowledges the importance of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which provide a blueprint for global sustainability efforts. These goals encompass key areas such as poverty alleviation, quality education, gender equality, clean energy, responsible consumption and production, and climate action, among others.

Paramount Transportation Systems is committed to integrating the principles of the UN Global Compact into the fabric of our company’s strategy, culture, and day-to-day operations. We recognize our responsibility to not only abide by these principles but also to actively contribute to their advancement. By participating in collaborative projects aligned with the broader development goals of the United Nations, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals, we aim to drive positive change and create a lasting impact on society and the environment.
