10 Commitment vs. Practice Performance Comparison by Theme Theme Average Score: UNGC Signatory Average Score: Non-Signatory Difference Overall Average Environment 56.6 42.8 13.8 44 Labor and Human Rights 55.1 43.7 11.4 44.7 Ethics 51.8 40.4 11.4 41.4 Sustainable Procurement 50 36.7 13.4 37.9 In 2010 Belron joined 12,000 other organisations in aligning its definition of an ethical, responsible and sustainable business with that of the United Nations Global Compact. This provides a high level set of guiding principles which Belron uses as a basis for the written code of ethics developed by each of its businesses. This ensures that all Belron people have a clear set of behavioural guidelines while providing an ethical framework for the business as a whole. Using UNGC as a guide, Belron selected an assessment tool -- EcoVadis -- to assess and monitor how well the code of ethics has been implemented and how successfully the group's activities are embracing the principles of responsible business. It also provided a framework which allowed results to be benchmarked against other companies and to identify opportunities for improvement in the future, customized to the status of each business unit. By ensuring Belron's policies, implementation actions, and reporting follow the UNGC principles, it brings the caring element of Belron's purpose - 'Making a difference by solving people's problems with real care' - to life and integrates it into the business in a credible and concrete way.
