As a global provider of open-standard communication products, systems and solutions, Aastra is a proud signatory to the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate social responsibility (CSR) agreement.
The UN Global Compact is first and foremost concerned with exhibiting and building the social legitimacy of business and markets. Members of the UN Global Compact demonstrate leadership by advancing responsible corporate citizenship, developing practical solutions to problems related to globalization, sharing practices and learning.
Aastra has already been demonstrating leadership by advancing responsible corporate citizenship through its launch of its ethical sourcing program – Aastra’s “EthoSourcing” program.
Aastra’s “EthoSourcing” program covers a wide range of issues such as health and safety, wages and benefits, forced and child labour, harassment and abuse, and non-discrimination as well as good environmental practices. The standards associated with these issues are outlined in Aastra’s EthoSourcing Code of Conduct.
Our auditors are actively involved at the initial contract manufacturer (CM) selection stage when assessing and selecting new commercial partners.

Working together to promote communications among the world’s youth…
As a sign of their commitment to their global social responsibilities, a number of Aastra’s suppliers, contract manufacturers and service providers also actively support youth leadership programs around the world. Together with the support of Aastra and its staff, and in partnership with The Eagle Down Foundation, our strategic partners have brought together youth from various conflict-prone regions around the world to promote cross-cultural communications and to train future leaders.
