Standard Ethics (the Agency) is founded on the belief that financial world must be sustainable. The Company Shareholders believe that profit can be achieved through proper management driven by healthy competition based on entrepreneurial and managerial skills rather than the improper use of natural resources, labour, means of production and marketing processes.
In pursuing its corporate objectives, Standard Ethics intends to respect the general Sustainable and Governance Principles as well as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations.
Standard Ethics recognises the supremacy of the United Nations (UN) and also, on the subjects of economic development, employees’ rights and European law, the supremacy of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the European Union (EU). These will indicate, in the first instance, the Parameters needed to interpret the environmental, social and governance standards adopted by the Agency.
In addition to the Statute of the Agency, the Shareholders, who contribute to the development and growth of the Company, agree to be bound by following Code of Conduct for Directors and Managers.
