INTRODUCTION
At The Global Society we want to ensure that the positive work we do does not have unintended side effects.

As a values-first organisation, we will consistently seek ways to improve our work practices to ensure we not only have a positive workplace, but that we contribute to positive progress in the world.

We believe that legislative frameworks are only the beginning of company’s obligations to the environment and society.

The Global Society and its staff are committed to ensuring that any our business undertakings are conducted as ethically as possible in accordance with the following policy.
