NEC supports the Global Compact’s Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption, and implements these principles through its business activities.
The ISO26000 is a standard consisting of 7 core subjects that all organizations are advised to put into practice. 36 issues related to social responsibility are spread across these 7 core subjects that organizations may select in accordance with their needs.
