Remembering the lessons of the Elders…
Fast forward to 2015
So in all actuality today’s sustainable home builders are just relearning what the older generations already knew:
- Build from local resources.
- Recycle your water.
- Make and Store your own power.
- out of control sea level rise that is forcing island inhabitants to seek higher ground,
- severe storms and tornadoes wreaking havoc in the Midwest,
- heat indexes of plus 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60°C) in India,
- uncontrollable forest fires in the Western USA,
- drought conditions forcing entire populations to abandon areas in Africa.
The International Businesses Standards Organization is a non-profit independent organization which was established under the initiative of entrepreneurs in order to support an international trade and a business development.
At IBSO, we strongly believe that the increasing involvement of enterprises in international markets will help to promote a sustainable future and aids in the solution of many other serious global problems.
We are convinced that cross-border commercial activity provides a great number of benefits. It creates jobs, raises incomes and standards of living, increases the innovative capabilities of market-based national economies, and as a consequence of all this, it boosts local, regional, national, and global economic growth. And finally, global commercial exchange plays an important role in maintaining of worldwide peace and stability.
This reality motivates us to continue to build a robust structure that supports not just a modern, but a progressive and ethically oriented organization around the world. Maintaining and encouraging such an international business activity, there is where we invest our resources.
As a group, the IBSO strongly believes that our organization is a lot more than just a group of people coming together for a common cause. Ever since its creation in 2011, we have gone to great lengths to implement new initiatives and develop new tools that keep us focused on the ever changing interests of international market players all around the globe.
I am sure that now, in today's kind of economical world we are in, it is just the right time to present to the business-society our new project,
This is a global, voluntary initiative designed for entrepreneurs and a wide range of organizations. The Worldwide Charter encourages its signatories to contribute to sustainable global progress by incorporating into their business practices nine specific principles in the areas of environmental protection, and economic and social development.
Coupled with our carefully selected experts, we have developed this initiative as all-encompassing code of conduct that reflects the universal principles of fair dealing and the best international practices in ethics and corporate responsibility.
It is aimed at empowering businesses and organizations around the world to be more strategic in promoting its commitment to sustainable and positive business practices in clear, simple and easily understandable terms for their partners, customers and the public at large.
We have determined that there should be no charge for signatories to participate in the Worldwide Charter. The rationale is that we are thinking it will be illogical to require the fees from the enterprises whose leaders are committed to implement fair dealing practices and to conform to the standards of modern society.
I urge you to consider joining this Worldwide Charter. I hope it will increase your worldwide performance and your ability to compete globally.
In conclusion, I just wanted you to know that we are continuing to work very assiduously to maintain IBSO’s world-class status that is responsive to the 21st Century challenges of our global village. We intend to develop and maintain efficient and flexible standardization solutions to meet the needs of international business society.
We look forward to working with you on growing your involvement in the global marketplace through a collaborative and efficient partnership with the International Businesses Standards Organization.
Chairman of the International Businesses Standards Organization
