Besides being a leading maker of footwear, Reebok is among the first companies to put its human rights stance down on paper.
"Reebok's devotion to human rights worldwide is a hallmark of our corporate culture. As a corporation in an ever-more global economy, we will not be indifferent to the standards of our business partners around the world. We believe that the incorporation of internationally recognized human-rights standards into our business practice improves worker morale and results in a higher quality working environment and higher-quality products. In developing this policy, we have sought to use standards that are fair, that are appropriate to diverse cultures and that encourage workers to take pride in their work."
