Key commitments
We are committed to assessing our impact and focusing our efforts in these key areas.
  • Safe workplaces
    Workers are entitled to safe and healthy workplaces.
  • Freely chosen employment
    All work should be voluntary; no worker should have to pay for a job.
  • Empowering women
    Quality jobs for women translate to positive impacts for communities.
  • Fair wages
    Wages should meet workers’ basic needs.
  • Environmental protection
    Safeguarding the environment protects workers and their communities.
As a global retail and technology company employing hundreds of thousands of workers around the world, we recognize the importance of raising awareness and training our employees on relevant human rights and social responsibility issues.
Partnerships
The complex, persistent challenges in working conditions cannot be solved alone; improving supply chains requires collaboration. We are members of, or work closely with, these groups and initiatives.
