United Nations Global Compact: Communication on Progress - 2011
2010 - Framework: Global Compact
Accenture’s commitment to protecting human rights spans how we treat our employees, our expectations of our suppliers and how we support the communities where we work and live. It is anchored in our Code of Business Ethics (COBE), which we revised in 2010; our Supplier Standards of Conduct; and our global policies, including Meritocracy, Data Privacy, Harassment, Physical Security, Geographic Expansions and Working in High Risk Areas, Crisis Management, Procurement of Goods and Services, and Reporting Unlawful or Unethical Activity - Prohibition Against Retaliation.
That commitment extends to the protection of the health and safety of our employees, contractors, guests and neighbors. As such, over the next few years, Accenture is committed to establishing a global approach to health and safety and building on our current local geographic certifications for OHSAS 18001:2007.
