Corporate Social Responsibility
Managing risk is an important executive responsibility. Reputations that take decades to build up can be ruined in hours through corruption scandals or environmental accidents. These draw unwanted attention from regulators, courts, governments and media. At Assure Security & Investigation Services we are wholly committed to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). It is a key value and an integral part of our business, a commitment that is core to the way we operate. At Assure we are committed to conducting business ethically, legally and in a manner that is fiscally, environmentally and socially responsible.
As well as our commitment at corporate level all of our staff are briefed fully on CSR issues wherever we operate and “The Voluntary Principles” on security and human rights apply.
The Voluntary Principles
The Voluntary Principles are the only human rights guidelines designed specifically for extractive sector companies. Participants in the Voluntary Principles Initiative, including governments, companies, and NGOs, agree to proactively implement or assist in the implementation of the Voluntary Principles. Through implementation of the Voluntary Principles, and participation in the Voluntary Principles Initiative, companies are better able to align their corporate policies and procedures with internationally recognized human rights principles in the provision of security for their operations. In so doing, companies communicate to employees, contractors, shareholders, and consumers their commitment to the Principles: (1) through sharing of best practices and lessons learned with one another, and (2) by collaborating on difficult issues.
