Melitron Corporation Becomes a Supporting Member of the United Nation Global Compact

Melitron Corporation became a supporting member of the United Nation Global Compact Organization. Although the Global Compact does not yet exist in Canada, the GC Office is supporting various efforts to raise awareness among the Canadian business community.

The (UNGCO) Global Compact is a framework for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anticorruption. As the world’s largest global corporate citizenship initiative, the Global Compact is primarily concerned with exhibiting and building the social legitimacy of business and markets. Global Compact relies on public accountability, transparency and the enlightened self-interest of companies, labour and civil society to initiate and share, substantive action in pursuing the principles, upon which is the foundation of Global Compact.

Business, trade and investment are essential pillars for prosperity and peace. However, in many areas business is too often linked with serious dilemmas – such as, exploitative practices, corruption, income inequality, and barriers that discourage innovation and entrepreneurship.

Through a voluntary initiative, Melitron joins the United Nation Global Compact Organization to acknowledge and perform responsible business practices, build trust and social capital, and contribute to broad-based development and sustainable markets.

The benefits of Melitron participating in the Global Compact include:

  1. Demonstrating leadership and advancing responsible corporate citizenship.
  2. Producing practical solutions to contemporary problems related to globalization, sustainable development and corporate responsibility in a multi-stakeholder context.
  3. Taking a proactive stance on critical issues to manage risk.
  4. Leveraging the UN’s global reach and convening power with governments, business, civil society and other stakeholders.
  5. Learning and sharing good business practices.
  6. Improving corporate/brand management, employee morale and productivity, and operational efficiencies.
