Commitment to Sustainability

Commitment to Sustainability

Stylecraft are now a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact.

As part of our ongoing sustainability strategy, Stylecraft has been accepted as a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world. Founded by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in 2000, the UN Global Compact is built on the belief that businesses everywhere can play a pivotal role in improving our world, and it starts by doing business right. To date there are over 9,300 businesses in 165 countries committed to upholding the UN values and principles in how they operate and Stylecraft are now amongst them.
The UN Global Compact asks participating companies to pursue two voluntary goals:

1. Internalise the Ten Principles within the company’s strategies, policies and operations and;
2. Undertake projects to advance the broader development goals of the United Nations, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals.

What are the Ten Principles?

The UN Global Compact Ten Principles are a set of core values covering the areas of environment, human rights, labour standards and anticorruption. Stylecraft will work to incorporate these principles into our strategies, culture and day-to-day operations moving forward, ensuring that we as a business are upholding basic responsibilities to people and the planet.

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

The SDGs are a set of 17 Global Goals set out by the United Nations in 2016 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and seek to eradicate all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change.

As part of our commitment, we will be required to submit a yearly report to the UN outlining our plans, actions & outcomes to address the Ten Principles & the Global Goals. We will also be liaising with the local Global Compact Network in Australia to find opportunities and innovative ways to address the goals on a national level. At Stylecraft, we are extremely proud to be a part of this global movement and to re-affirm our commitment to embracing opportunities for exemplary sustainable practice.
