International Operations and Human Rights

            CPS expects partner Organizations to be responsible corporate citizens abroad and at home.  In contemplating a partnership, CPS will pay particularly close attention to the activities of corporations in countries that have records of political repression and/or basic human rights violations.  Organizations should:

  • Have adopted specific human rights standards to govern international operations and practices
  • Have credible, enforceable systems for monitoring their own codes of conduct
  • Strive to remedy the threat of child and prison labor in their supply chains
  • Respect workers’ rights to organize
  • Directly combat human rights abuses and environmental degradation
  • Use more stringent environmental and workplace standards where those standards fall below the international norm
