Ethical business organization

The Schaffner Group has earned its reputation for being an ethical business organization. It is our responsibility to maintain this valuable reputation for the future. It makes good business sense to deal with our customers, our competitors, our associates, our suppliers, our communities and governmental agencies in an honest, professional manner.

UN Global Compact

The United Nations Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.

Conflict Minerals Policy

There has been increased awareness of human right violations in the mining of certain minerals (Tin, Tantalum, Tungsten and Gold) from a location described as the “Conflict Region” which is situated in the eastern portion of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries.

Schaffner supports the Conflict Minerals Act such that we do not directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups through mining or mineral trading in the DRC and adjoining countries.
