The Castolin Eutectic philosophy to conserve the earth's precious resources and give added value to old and worn parts is acknowledged worldwide. In our production facilities we have programs to reduce our environmental impact, and have launched the GreenBraz range of products that are cadmium and boric acid free. We were also one of the first welding companies to market exhaust equipment for welding. As a pioneer in this area, Castolin Eutectic has created the Conservationist of the Year Award in 1973.
Corporate sustainability starts with a company’s value system and a principles-based approach to doing business. This means operating in ways that, at a minimum, meet fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Responsible businesses enact the same values and principles wherever they have a presence, and know that good practices in one area do not offset harm in another. By incorporating the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact into strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity, companies are not only upholding their basic responsibilities to people and planet, but also setting the stage for long-term success.
The Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact are derived from: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.
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.
Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
