Over the past years, MALF gained and developed a profound understanding of the principles that the implementation of which should contribute to the sound development and sustainability of businesses in the world and especially in developing countries like the Republic of Sudan. Thus, we at MALF have joined and adopted the ten principles of the UN Global Impact to be implemented in the course of our business and to advocate such principles in our community.
We pledge ourselves to the implementation of the following principles, while currently, we are developing our internal policies which object to incorporate those principles. The ten principles of the UN global impact are as follows:
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.
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 labor;
Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labor; and
Principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
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.
Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
