Our Commitment: A Global Leader in Social Responsibility
Providing exceptional products and services isn’t enough. Our team is committed to positively impacting the environment, economies, and local communities in which we operate, and we are actively involved in programs focused on human rights and freedoms.
A core tenet of FocusPoint is to conduct business with great integrity to ensure our business is beyond reproach. We ensure accountability, transparency in operations, and compliance with all of our legal, moral, and regulatory obligations. All partners and personnel (including contractors) must adhere to the highest ethical standards.
As a global business, we are compliant to all applicable labor laws. We voluntarily comply with the UK’s Modern Slavery Act and oppose and prohibit human trafficking, child labor, slavery, slave or forced labor (and other forms of modern slavery), and we demand the same of our partners and business associates. All of our personnel adhere to the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights, which was established in 2000 by the United States and the United Kingdom.
In 2012, FocusPoint became a signatory company of the International Code of Conduct for private security providers (ICoC), a Swiss government, multi-stakeholder initiative that aims to clarify international standards for the private security industry and improve oversight and accountability. FocusPoint is also a member of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.
