“Yes to the Responsible Business Initiative”

Popular vote on 29th November 2020

The Emmaus Switzerland Federation supports the initiative on Responsible Business and recommends voting YES.

The Responsible Business Initiative states the obvious: when multinational companies, based in Switzerland, pollute rivers or destroy entire regions, they must be held responsible!
Anyone who uses child labour or destroys the environment must be held accountable.
Time and time again, multinational companies violate human rights or are responsible for destroying the environment. With this initiative, they would be obliged not to look away, but rather to act preventively in order to avoid harming humans or the environment.
Unscrupulous multinationals take advantage of the situation in countries that do not have a functional judicial system. They use child labour or destroy the environment without fearing any consequences. This is why this initiative is necessary.
