SULA NYC now a signatory to UN Global Compact.
First USA organic skin care company to participate.
The UN Global Compact, initiated in 2000, asks companies worldwide to embrace, support and enact, within their sphere of influence, a set of core values in the areas of human rights, labor standards, the environment and anti-corruption.
SULA NYC will define plans and programs accordingly, based on the '10 principles' please see below.
We also urge other organic and natural skin care companies to follow us and sign up. Up till now, SULA NYC is the only organic skin care company in the USA as signatory and we feel that, by definition, companies with an organic focus should at least consider to join.
Every four months we will communicate our involvement and progress. Transparency and accountability are key. Please visit www.globalcompact.org and learn about the goals. programs etc. of this important initiative. These are the principles:
Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
