The 10 Principles
From shared values to a better world. This motto connects companies and organizations that participate in the worldwide UN Global Compact and the national Global Compact Network of the Netherlands.
It requires sustainable business. That means implementing the Ten Principles, as propagated by the United Nations, in everyday business operations. Ten Principles on the pillars of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. An ongoing process of due diligence is an integral part of this. This involves mapping out risks in the area of the Ten Principles in one's own organization and the production chain and then preventing, reducing, repairing or compensating them. In other words, increasing positive impact and reducing negative impact.
These are the principles that are important to my business.
Principle 1 - My company supports and respects internationally accepted human rights.
Principle 2 - As far as possible and conceivable, I will do my best not to violate human rights at every layer of this enterprise. Do you have a signal about one of the countries from which I import and/or dropship, please indicate that. The same goes for brands I sell. After all, I do not want to work with countries or brands that knowingly violate human rights.
Principle 4 - Any form of forced or compulsory labor will not be tolerated. If you have a signal about a brand that does engage in forced or compulsory labour, please give it. After all, I don't want to partner with brands that knowingly mistreat their employees at any level.
Principle 5 - Child labor is not tolerated. If you have a signal about a brand that practices child labour, please let us know. Children should be children.
Principle 6 - There is no discrimination in this business. If you have a signal about a brand that does discriminate in the workplace, please indicate this. After all, I don't want to work with brands that deliberately discriminate.
Principle 8 - To promote the environment, this webshop only supplies consumers in the Netherlands and Europe, which means less air traffic. Of course, purchasing products is excluded from this rule, but I do try to buy products from the Netherlands first, then Europe and then I look further out. As far as dropshipping is concerned, I follow the same rules as far as possible.
Principle 9 - The brands in my webshop and in the Facebook and LinkedIn group will all be sustainable brands. If you believe that a certain brand is not that sustainable at all, please indicate this and I will investigate it.
Principle 10 - Corruption of any kind, including extortion and bribery, will not be tolerated. Do you have a signal about one of the countries from which I import and/or dropship, please indicate that. The same goes for brands I sell. After all, I don't want to work with countries and brands that use such practices.
