Corporate Sustainability Statement

LAST UPDATED 1 MARCH 2022

The Unmistakables Ltd is committed to the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact to ensure that we operate in ways that meet fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. 

The Ten Principles are derived from: 

 

We have and will continue to be committed to implementing systems and controls aimed at ensuring that breaches of human rights are not taking place within our organisation or our supply chains.
 

Given the nature of the consulting services we offer clients, we have a low risk of human rights breaches in our business. Our supply chains are limited, and we procure goods and services from a restricted range of suppliers. We carry out due diligence to ensure that suppliers we partner with align with our company values.

We do not enter into business with organisations, in the UK or overseas, which knowingly support or are found to be involved with breaches of fundamental human rights.

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.

We are committed to maintaining a work culture that offers the flexibility, support and safe spaces everyone needs to be themselves and maintain a healthy work-life balance. We recruit through multiple channels to meet the needs of different audiences and offer options for flexible working to accommodate people’s individual lives and circumstances.

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.

We are also committed to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking. Our recruitment and people management processes are designed to ensure that all prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the UK and to safeguard employees from abuse or coercion.

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.

 

We seek to maximise sustainability measures in our workplaces by prioritising environmentally sound technologies, promoting the reduction of water and energy use, reducing material waste and maximising recycling.

 

Our office is based at Somerset House, which also aims to be as environmentally friendly as possible and has been awarded four stars for its commitment to sustainability by Julie’s Bicycle (a not-for-profit organisation, mobilising the arts and culture sectors to take action on the climate and ecological crisis).

Anti-Corruption

  • Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.

We are also committed to the principles of the Bribery Act 2010. As noted in our Business Code of Ethics: any offer, attempted offer, or acceptance of a bribe by any staff will be considered a gross misconduct.
