ZEON COMMITMENT TO THE UNITED NATION GLOBAL COMPACT
In June 2019 ZEON signed the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), joining a network of more than 13.000 organizations dedicated to undertaking activities based on universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
ZEON is committed to fulfill its corporate social responsibilities, making continuous efforts to realize a sustainable society based on international codes of conduct such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization (ILO) Declaration on fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and the UN Global Compact principles.
To ensure that this policy will be implemented and deeply understood, ZEON provides an appropriate training to any employee and executive. This applies also to the collaboration with the Stakeholders: ZEON encourages customers and partners to support this policy, sharing respect for human rights in any business activity.
Furthermore, ZEON does not tolerate any act of discrimination or harassment, child labor, forced labor or/nor unjustly low wage labor.
ZEON strive to prevent any violation of human rights and actively respond to any unintentional negative impact of our business activities on human rights.
Any information and progress on ZEON human rights initiative will be disclosed through communication channels such as the corporate website and corporate reports.
