UN Global Compact

 

STARK Group is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact and supports the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact on human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption.

As part of STARK Group, STARK Sourcing is committed to support the Ten Principles and UN’s work to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Sustainable Development Goals

At STARK Sourcing, we are committed to contributing to a more sustainable world. That is why we support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are a universal call for action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

We focus our main efforts on goals #12, “Life on land” and goals #15 “Responsible consumption and production”. These two goals pertain to our core tasks and are where we can deliver the most impact. We also support several of the remaining 15 goals throughout our business operations and supply chain.

Goal #12

Responsible consumption and production

STARK sourcing aims to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. We support sustainable construction by ensuring relevant materials are available in assortment to fulfil building standard requirements, including available documentation.

Goal #15

Life on land

STARK Sourcing aims to protect, restore, and promote the sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems and sustainably managed forests, to combat desertification, to halt and reverse land degradation and to halt biodiversity loss.

All timber and timber products sourced from suppliers outside the EU undergo third-party vendor due diligence to ensure that timber is legally harvested and traded, and 100% of all tropical hardwood products sourced are FSC certified.
