Promoting Social Inclusion
Responsible businesses recognise the role they have to play in improving the ability, opportunity and dignity of people disadvantaged on the basis of their identity, background and circumstance and seek to respond in a positive and proactive way.
We encourage companies to look beyond the four walls of their organisation and invest in their local communities by proactively creating opportunities for disadvantaged or under-represented groups to participate more fully in society.
UN Sustainable Development GoalsOur focus on Promoting Social Inclusion aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth which seeks to ‘Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all’.
