United Nations Global Compact
Gabriel embraces, supports and enacts the UN Global Compact's ten principles in the area of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
The UNGC's ten principles are derived from:
- The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
- The International Labour Organization's Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights of Work
- The Rio Declaration on Environment and Development
- The United Nations Convention against Corruption.
- Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
- Principle 2: make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.
- Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
- Principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
- Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labour; and
- Principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
- Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
- Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
- Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
- Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
Whilst Gabriel is still at the project permitting stage efforts have been focused on Principles 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, and 10.
