EXSYN has joined the United Nations Global Compact, The world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. With this commitment EXSYN will align its strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals.
"As a company we operate in an industry which is by default global. This means that our business exposes us to many different cultures, religions and society norms. By signing this United Nations manifast we acknowledge that each culture will have its differences, however that on a global scale we should strive for common principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. By incorporating the ten Global Compact principles into strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity as a company we are upholding our basic responsibilities to people and planet." says Sander de Bree, CEO of EXSYN.
