Responsible business means continually striving to improve. Seeking out opportunities to advance our thinking and our approach and achieve internationally recognised standards which assist our stakeholders in assessing our performance.
We believe that working together, we can achieve more than by working alone and are active in membership organisations which are working to promote better social, economic and environmental outcomes for all.
Pace has maintained its membership of the FTSE4Good Index series since its inception. The FTSE4Good Index Series provides investors with the opportunity to gain exposure to companies that meet globally recognised corporate responsibility standards. The indices have been designed to identify and measure the performance of companies that are working towards environmental sustainability, developing positive relationships with stakeholders and up-holding and supporting universal human rights.
Membership and acceptance to FTSE4Good is independently assessed. FTSE works in association with the Ethical Investment Research Service (EIRiS), and its network of international partners to research company corporate responsibility performance. EIRiS is a leading independent provider of research into the social, environmental and ethical performance of companies.
Pace is a member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC). Since 2004, the EICC has played a critical role in driving improvement in the electronics industry. Through the application of shared standards and tools, EICC believes it can create better social, economic, and environmental outcomes for all involved in the electronics supply chain. These outcomes include: improved conditions for workers, increased efficiency and productivity for customers and suppliers, economic development, and a cleaner environment for communities.
Thus, the EICC mission is to promote a common Code of Conduct and a shared approach to implementing the Code throughout members operations and supply chain. EICC sets goals and measure impact in achieving the mission based on the following areas: Code awareness, Code adoption, and Code compliance. All of EICC’s activities relate to at least one, if not all, of these areas.
Pace continues to participate in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). CDP works to transform the way the world does business to prevent dangerous climate change and protect our natural resources and represents 767 institutional investors holding $92 trillion in assets.
