COP

UN Global Compact

MARTIN BENCHER GROUP has supported the United Nations Global Compact since 2013.

The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti- corruption.

In September 2015, the UN adopted 17 new Sustainable Development Goals to replace the previous Millennium Goals. The Sustainable Development Goals take a broad perspective and are relevant for all countries, rich as well as poor. For these goals to become reality, all countries, businesses and organizations should embrace whatever change is necessary. For Martin Bencher, the journey has already begun. While Martin Bencher supports all the Sustainable Development Goals, we focus our efforts towards the three goals, on which we can have the biggest positive impact: goals no. 3 -, 8 and 17.

Goal 3: Good health and well-being

Through our ISO 14001 certification, we ensure the health and wellbeing of staff and stakeholders. Locally all offices identify relevant health initiatives to implement, such as health checks, fruit at the office, health insurance, adjustable office furniture, and air- improvement devices at the office.

We have just received our Great Place to Work certificate based on an audit of our culture and an employee satisfaction survey.

Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth

We have our MB standards and quarterly QHSE report to follow up on performance.

We have employee satisfaction surveys and performance reviews with all employees. Here we identify the need for training and  for the individual employees as wells as to develop the business.

Goal 17: Partnerships for the goal

We have two strategic partnerships which enable us to contribute to sustainable global development.

First, our partnership with PLAN Børnefonden (member of Child Funds Alliances) gives us the possibility to support children and families in creating a better future thorugh education.

Second, our support of WWF has guided our environmental responsibility commitments.

Martin Bencher creates annual Communication on Progress (COP) and shares  it with our stakeholders using our primary channels of communication.
