Taking Care of Business: The impact of big business on people living in poverty, a Policy Paper by SCIAF, July 2014


Businesses, as part of society, must be open about their impacts on society, the environment and human rights; and should be held to account for their activities. This paper examines what is meant by the term 'business' and what big business looks like. Furthermore, using the experience of SCIAF partners in Colombia, the paper explore the role of big business and its impact on people living in poverty and on our planet making suggestions on the kind of good practice needed and how this can be promoted.
