DANBURY, Conn., June 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cartus Corporation, a leading provider of global relocation services and a signatory member of the United Nations Global Compact, has submitted its third annual "Communication on Progress" to the Honorable Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations.
Cartus President and CEO Kevin Kelleher noted the company's continuing commitment to a number of key areas, including:
- Remaining focused on worldwide compliance in the environmental and human rights circles, evidenced by continued efforts in every aspect of Cartus' business — including a new Environmental Policy and continued emphasis on supplier compliance.
- Working to protect clients by maintaining stringent controls to ensure data integrity and protection, including policies and procedures for protection of private information, SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 compliance, and Safe Harbor self-certification.
- Continuing to be guided by the concept of "doing what's right" — a focus on ethical behavior that unifies the company's practices and interactions. For instance, for the fourth straight year, Realogy, the company's parent company — and by extension, Cartus — was named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere Institute.
Cartus' dedication to global citizenship initiatives extends to health and safety and community involvement, to name just a few of the areas that further support its global compact commitment.
The United Nations Global Compact, inaugurated in 2000, is the world's largest voluntary corporate citizenship and sustainability initiative. The organization is made up of more than 10,000 business participants and other stakeholders from more than 130 countries.
Companies that have signed the United Nations Global Compact are expected to align their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption.
