2015 Communication On Progress
19 July 2015
Tracking our performance in human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
The United Nations Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world – with 10,000 signatories based in more than 140 countries. Noble Group has supported the initiative since 2010 – a strategic policy agreement for businesses committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour practice, environment protection and anti-corruption.
Our approach to sustainability is driven by a focus on safeguarding the health, wellbeing and safety of our people and maintaining the highest standards of corporate and personal integrity. We build responsible supply chains resilient against resource scarcity, climatic shifts and energy insecurity and adopt environmentally friendly technology to enhance efficiency and minimise waste.
“Since joining the UN Global Compact in 2010, the 10 principles of
the Compact have continued to be the bedrock of Noble’s way of conducting business.”
– Yusuf Alireza, CEO, Noble Group
As examples of this commitment, we are delivering products to serve the growing demand for clean fuels and our businesses make active contributions to support local communities in a range of ways, with special emphasis on facilitating access to quality education and healthcare. The principles that underpin the UN Global Compact are not simply mission statements but are put into practice.
2015 marks the first year we have sought to supplement our UNGC COP reporting with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. Adopting an internationally recognised protocol is an important step to greater transparency for our sustainability disclosure. This report is prepared in accordance with the “Core Option” of GRI G4. Performance data is accompanied by a brief description of our policies and management systems, as well as our activities and their impact on our day-to-day business.
