Tristar Group CEO Eugene Mayne has called on companies in the UAE to support the Global Goals of the United Nations (UN) focused to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all people of the planet. Speaking at the UN Global Goals Workshop, organized by International Quality and Excellence Consultant Sunil Thawani, Mr. Mayne reiterated that business leaders must support the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact (UNGC) ‘not just by lip service but by action.’ The 10 Principles cover four areas related to human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption and directly contribute to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are a set of economic, social and environmental goals ratified by 193 countries, including UAE at the UN in September 2015 which aims to ‘end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change’ by 2030.
