WE SAY YES!
The initiative creates clear rules to put a stop to the unscrupulous behavior of some corporations. Experience has shown that voluntary measures are not enough to ensure that all companies respect human rights or minimum environmental standards.
Anyone who uses child labor or destroys the environment should be held accountable. Now corporations are to be held liable if, for example, they poison rivers or devastate entire areas of land.
Unscrupulous corporations take advantage of the situation in those countries that do not have a functioning judiciary. They rely on child labor or destroy the environment without having to fear consequences. That is why the initiative is needed.
Again and again corporations violate human rights or are responsible for environmental destruction. The initiative obliges corporations to no longer look the other way and to take preventive measures to ensure that no one is harmed and that the environment is not destroyed.
