Human Rights Position Statement

Human Rights Position Statement

Today, many people around the world are living in poverty or are vulnerable to exploitation. We believe that the global economy — and global businesses like ours — needs to do much more to ensure that work empowers people. When people thrive, they are better able to meet their own needs as well as the needs of their families and communities. We believe we can, and should, play a role in increasing opportunity for people to thrive in the workplaces and communities we touch.
