BCSD – Business Council for Sustainable Development

NOS is a signatory to the Charter of Principles of the BCSD Portugal, a document that sets out the principles that provide guidelines for good business management. The Charter of Principles aims to create a voluntary framework suitable for companies of various sizes, in order to encourage the growth of sustainable management practices, based on six principles: (1) Legal compliance and Ethical conduct, (2) Human rights, (3) Working rights, (4) Prevention, health and safety, (5) Environment and (6) Management.

The inspiration for the Charter of Principles of the BCSD Portugal comes from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work of the International Labor Organization and the United Nations Global Compact.

United Nations Global Compact

The United Nations Global Compact is an initiative in corporate citizenship founded on ten key Principles in the areas of human rights, labor practices, environmental protection and anti-corruption, and aims at encouraging a public and voluntary commitment by companies to adhere to them.

Its ten principles are based on universally accepted declarations, namely the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Declaration of the International Labor Organization in relation to Fundamental Principles and Rights at work, and the Rio Declaration on the Environment and Development.

NOS signed up to this initiative in 2014, and this year it also became a member of the Global Compact Network Portugal (UN GCNP), the network that brings together the signatories to the initiative that operate in Portugal.
