LOG’ ETHIC CHARTER
Last document Update: January 2020
ACTE INTERNATIONAL is a service provider responsible for securing
international distribution and supply chains on behalf of its customers.
Its core business is to organize and coordinate international physical
import/export flows of goods.
As such, it provides services executed by its own teams or via
subcontractors, both in France and abroad.
Purpose of the Charter:
This charter seeks to describe the conditions under which services are
provided by ACTE INTERNATIONAL, its network, its partners, and its
subcontractors.
Objective of the Charter:
The objective of the charter is to enforce the Eco-Friendly & Ethical
Logistics policy among ACTE INTERNATIONAL employees, its network,
its partners, and its subcontractors. It informs ACTE INTERNATIONAL's
social and economic partners, institutional partners, and customers on its
internal and international operating policy.
General Standard:
ACTE INTERNATIONAL's ethics charter complies with social and
ecological standards, in accordance with the rules of International Labor
Organization, United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, UN
Convention on the Rights of the Child, UN Convention on the Elimination
of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, and UN and OECD's anti-
corruption conventions.
ACTE INTERNATIONAL is member of the UN GLOBAL COMPACT
since 2013.
In addition, ACTE INTERNATIONAL gives priority to sustainability
and transparency of business relationships as much as economic
interest.
As a certified Authorized Economic Operator, ACTE INTERNATIONAL
promotes compliance with international regulations and the above
requirements by defining appropriate procedures, implementing them,
and enforcing their application among employees, partners, and national
and international subcontractors.
Failure to comply with this ethics charter is a criterion for ending
a partnership or refusing cooperation.
In addition, ACTE INTERNATIONAL encourages its customers and
consultants to meet the same standard, and keeps the right to terminate
collaboration in the event of a major incompatibility.
ACTE INTERNATIONAL's anti-corruption management system was
approved in September 2014 by DNV, under the requirements and terms
of ETHIC INTELLIGENCE standard.
Actions conducted by ACTE INTERNATIONAL in no way replace the
responsibility of local and national government bodies, international
NGOs, and staff representatives to develop and enforce a continuous
improvement policy on social standards, anti-corruption, and sustainable
development.
Legal Compliance
Compliance with all applicable national regulations and legal obligations,
minimum industry standards, the rules of the International Labor
Organization (ILO), United Nations conventions, and potentially any other,
more restrictive legal requirement.
Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining
Rights
In countries in which rights to freedom of association and collective
bargaining are limited by law or circumstances, the implementation of
parallel channels will be facilitated in order to allow the independence and
freedom of organization and bargaining. (In accordance with rules 87, 98,
and 135 of the International Labor Organization)
Anti-Corruption :
The anti-bribery management system (ABMS) of Acte International
has been certified ISO37001 in August 2019. In accordance with our
anti-corruption Code signed first in September 2014, and updated last
end of 2019, ACTE International refuses any form of involvement in
direct or indirect acts of corruption or extortion that may result in
undue benefits for the company, its employees, its subcontractors, its
suppliers, its customers, or any other third parties associated with
providing a service. ACTE International instead focuses its expertise
on helping partners who want support for resisting any attempt of
corruption.
