Constellis is pleased to announce that the International Code of Conduct Association (ICoCA) granted full membership to Olive Group, a Constellis entity, making the company the first ever ICoCA applicant to achieve full certification.
The ICoCA is a multi-stakeholder initiative which seeks to govern the private security industry by promoting good governance, respect for human rights and international humanitarian law, and a high standard of professional conduct. The association helps victims of abuse by private security providers and ensures protection.
ICoCA certification is currently based on external third-party certification to recognized standards and additional due diligence carried out by the association. Olive Group was the first company to achieve accredited certification to the standard ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012 in November 2013.
Olive Group’s status as the first private security company to be certified reinforces Constellis’ commitment to good governance throughout its global operations, and strengthens its position as an industry leader.
