Responsibilecompany® Global Charter is a voluntary initiative under which companies work together to improve the quality of the work environment for their employees, along with the quality of life for people in the community and society at large.
A responsible business is an organization which takes a strategic approach to include sustainability, ethics and corporate responsibility to create long-term sustainable value for relevant stakeholders.
RMSA is committed to building a strong network of organization assessment sectors to promote responsible management towards a sustainable future. In order to fulfil our mission, we have produced a Global Charter with six core principles of responsible management, and are asking for signatories. The Global Charter signatory is based on CEO commitment to the promotion and implementation of the six core principles of responsible management into the business practices of an organization.
