Celebrating world environment day: the UNGC is our framework for a sustainable business
Today is world environment day and the focus of the day is on green business and creating a sustainable economy. Fantastic!
This is great. For Maxibit the green environment is central to our business strategy – it’s the reason we started selling high quality, resusable displays in the first place. For us it’s a constant process towards creatng a sustainable future and an economy that works for us.
A great worktool for a green economy, and one that Maxibit has been using since 2007, is the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). Of course, the global compact isn’t just about the environment, but also includes important issues like ethics and human rights.
We can thoroughly recommend all businesses, friends and competitors alike, to get involved and to make a change using the Global Compact as a framework. At the moment Maxibit is the only portable display manufacturer in the compact but we hope this rapidly changes.
