Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere

Under the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, companies have a responsibility to respect human rights and labor rights by international standards which includes identifying and avoiding practices that perpetuate poverty traps. A company can do this by conducting human rights due diligence to identify, prevent, mitigate, and account for how they address actual and potential human rights and labor rights impacts in their own operations and supply chains.

Addressing poverty is a complex process that should involve dialogue and collaboration among companies and stakeholders. QBS is committed to respecting human rights and fundamental principles and rights at work by leveraging our supply chains and taking collective action to address decent work deficits. We would like to develop strategies with communities to reduce work poverty and re-think supply chains to transform them into engines of sustainable growth.
