About ACHE



Social Responsibility

In 2009, ACHE became one of the Pioneer Signatories of the Global Principles for Socially Responsible Associations and Nonprofits sponsored by ASAE.

The six voluntary principles cover:

1. Responsible advocacy in a manner consistent with the general public good.

2. Environmental and Economic Sustainability encouraging the development and implementation of environmentally responsible technologies and practices.

3. Public Protection through:

  • Adherence to ethical standards and practices
  • Self regulation through effective programs of certification
  • Support of human rights internationally and freedom of association, collective activity and speech

4. Diversity through inclusive participation within the profession and promotion of expanded access to opportunity.

5. Philanthropy/Community Service by giving back to the larger community.

6. Leadership by developing socially responsible leaders and through organizational practices demonstrating these principles.
