U.N. Finds “Little Appreciation” for Human Rights among U.S. Businesses - Bangladesh Tragedy

U.N. Finds “Little Appreciation” for Human Rights among U.S. Businesses - Bangladesh Tragedy | Worth talking about | Scoop.it

Washington, May 4, 2013 Inter Press Service

WASHINGTON, May 4 2013 (IPS) - A United Nations expert group is warning that too many gaps remain in implementing new safeguards among businesses based in the United States, both in terms of their domestic and international operations, to ensure the protection of human rights of workers and communities affected by those operations.,,,

 

“With a few exceptions, most companies still struggle to understand the implications of the corporate responsibility to respect human rights,” Puvan Selvanathan, the current head of the Working Group and one of the two members on the U.S. trip, said at the end of the mission “Those that do have policies in place, in turn, face the challenge of turning such policies into effective practices.”... http://www.ipsnews.net/2013/05/u-n-finds-little-appreciation-for-human-rights-among-u-s-businesses/

pdjmoo's curator insight, May 7, 2013 1:45 AM

Corporations should seize this moment to lead the charge on investing in improving human rights and reasonable working conditions and wages within their supply chains, not capitalizing on slave labor and driving countries to meet their incessant demands so they can increase their bottom-line quarterly profits. 

Any company who bases their strategy and promotion on this foundation would become a major force within the global consumer world.   Better quality, higher price, means less and longer lasting products, maintaining reasonable profit margins at the same time.  "More, bigger, faster" is a death song to society.  The consumer is getting smarter by the minute and corporations exist only because of human beings within their networks.   Human and environmental capital are priceless.

 It would be a joy to see companies step out and actively play a major role in environmentally sound, ethically humane contractual agreements that uplifts the population of the supply chain countries they draw on -- particularly in the poorer countries they exploit. The days of colonialism are over as are the days of blackmailing countries to produce more for less at the expense of shifting contracts to another country.  Change the system.

We cannot continue focusing only on increasing profits, at the expense of the poor and the environment.

"Kissings hands" and wearing hats with female understatement - we are happy for the British Ambassador in Vienna, HMA Susan le Jeune d'Allegeershecque and her stylish colleagues :-))

On Thursday 4 April, HMA Susan le Jeune d'Allegeershecque went to Windsor Castle to be received in Audience by Her Majesty the Queen. This meeting is called an Audience of The Queen, but is also known as "kissing hands". It is part of the ceremonial protocol involved in the appointment of our Heads of Mission.
This was the first Audience where all the Heads of Mission were female. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has 39 female Heads of Mission around the world.
