The UN Global Compact and SDGs

The UN Global Compact

The POLA ORBIS Group became a signatory to the UN Global Compact in February 2017. We provide training to all employees to ensure that they are well informed about the ten principles in four areas (human rights, labor standards, the environment and anti-corruption) outlined within the Global Compact and that they act with self-awareness. For more details, please access each linked site.

Human Rights Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
Principle 2: make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.
Labour Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
Principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labour; and
Principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
Environment Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
Anti-Corruption Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)


The sustainable development goals (SDGs) are the universal aims adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015 with the deadline for achievement set at 2030.

POLA ORBIS Group's CSR materiality


Of the 17 goals, the POLA ORBIS Group considers those with high compatibility with business operations to be the most important issues, including "gender equality," "decent work and economic growth," "industry, innovation and infrastructure" and "sustainable cities and communities," and aims to help solve extremely important issues related to the environment.
In concrete terms, we encourage women to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities and help develop local economies through innovation in traditional art and crafts. We will contribute to society by expanding the possibilities through leading-edge technologies and services that draw on women's perspectives. In consideration of the environment, we set and manage goals that cover everything from procurement to disposal.
