SHARED VALUE

Our corporate social responsibility approach

At CTG, we believe that all responsible businesses have a commitment to sustainability, which is why our corporate social responsibility initiatives are aligned with our core business strategy.

WE BELIEVE IN CREATING SHARED VALUE

This shared value is for our staff, for our clients and most importantly for the communities in which we work. Since 2015, we’ve been an advocate of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which is further demonstrated by our adoption of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) 10 principles on human rights, anti-corruption and the environment.

CTG used the SDGs as a bedrock to identify areas where our shared value approach could have the greatest impact; they not only reflect our internal values but stronly resonate with our core work and areas of influence.

OUR 2018 COMMUNICATION
ON PROGRESS REPORT

CTG continues to improve, standardise, and expand our sustainability commitment; our strategy embraces the following three principles:
  • Putting people first: creating an inclusive, rewarding and safe workplace
  • Transparency and corporate governance
  • Promoting peace, partnerships and protecting our environment

In 2019 we created a Social Good Committee to galvanise our staff’s commitment to social good and work to promote SDG 5, SDG 8 and SDG 16 in their work.

CALLING ON COLLECTIVE ACTION

At CTG we believe that through collective action we can do more. Our collaborative approach led us to joining various international forums, maintaining internationally recognised certifications, and reporting yearly on our sustainability progress. We adhere to the following international standards and guiding principles:

A firm believer that the Private Sector has a key role to play in sustainable development and helping the refugee and migration crisis, CTG continues to actively use public platforms to share our voice, inspire other businesses and galvanise further support for gender and peace initiatives.
