Commitment to the UN Global Compact
Falck is a signatory to the UN Global Compact. We commit to its ten principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption and thereby also to the principles for sustainable development agreed upon internationally and referenced in the UN Global Compact, i.e. the principles mentioned in the International Bill of Human Rights, the International Labor Organisation’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on the Environment and Development and the UN Convention against Corruption.
We integrate our sustainability efforts in our daily business decisions and strategy. Our commitment is firmly embedded in our Code of Conduct and in our Winning Behaviours.
Four main focus areas, four SDGs
Being mindful of our social, environmental and economic impact, we give particular attention to our impact on 1) the access to healthcare of our customers and the communities in which we operate, 2) the people we employ, 3) climate and the environment around us, and 4) the trust of our employees, customers and other stakeholders.
For each of these areas we have identified the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) which best corresponds to our efforts and to which we believe we can contribute the most: SDG 3 (Good health and well-being), SDG 8 (Decent work and economic growth), SDG 13 (Climate action) and SDG 16 (Peace, justice and strong institutions). This way, we ensure that we address the global challenges most closely linked to Falck’s business.
