Sustainability & Corporate Responsibility

An initiative of the International Business Standards Organization (IBSO), the Worldwide Charter for Fair International Commerce (WCFIC) is a global initiative that stands by businesses adopting sustainability and fair trade policies. The Worldwide Charter supports international businesses showcasing a particular social and environmental sensibility through following a code of conduct and a set of universal principles; reflecting the core values of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, labor conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO) and other internationally recognised principles.

Law In Order is a proud participant of the United Nations Global Compact. The United Nations (UN) Global Compact exists to assist the private sector in the management of increasingly complex risks and opportunities in the environmental, social and governance realms.

The UN Global Compact seeks to embed the Ten Principles in markets and corporate boardrooms, for the benefit of both businesses and society around the world.

The Global Compact has two key purposes:

  1. To encourage the integration of its ten principles into responsible business practice; and
  2. To garner collective action of the UN Global Compact and its related UN initiatives.

Law In Order is a signatory to the UN Global Compact and is committed to demonstrating tangible actions to support the Ten Principles by submitting formal Communications on Progress on an annual basis. Please click here to see the letter from our Managing Director, Julian McGrath to the UN Global Compact.
