Preventing Corporate Human Rights Abuses
Stop exploitation in supply chains.
Every company has a mandate to maximize returns and minimize risk. How we define the relevant stakeholders and responsibilities in each category will determine what kind of future we build.
We need governments that recognize return and risk relate to more than short-term profits and matter to more than just shareholders, that businesses can—and do—thrive when they respect the fundamental human rights of all stakeholders.
Taxpayers shouldn’t foot the bill for corporate malfeasance. ICAR stands with the public interest in supporting measures to ensure that externalizing the costs of operations—whether environmental degradation, human rights abuse, or legal bullying–onto vulnerable communities is not a viable business model.
