"People" (Human Capital) pertains to fair and beneficial business practices toward labor and the community and region in which a corporation conducts its business. O company conceives a reciprocal social structure in which the well being of corporate, labor and other stakeholder interests are interdependent. O seeks to benefit many constituencies, not exploit or endanger any group of them. The "upstreaming" of a portion of profit from the marketing of finished goods back to the original producer of raw materials, i.e., a farmer in fair trade agricultural practice, is a not unusual feature. In concrete terms, O would not knowingly use child labor, would pay fair salaries to its workers, would maintain a safe work environment and tolerable working hours, and would not otherwise exploit a community or its labor force. O seeks to "give back" by contributing to the strength and growth of its community with such things as health care and education. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has developed guidelines that enables O to report on the social impact of our business.
