Elimination of Child Labor
Author: Universal Corporation, Published on: 6 February 2014
Universal does not employ child labor in any of its facilities worldwide. We actively encourage farmers and suppliers to follow this standard, and we work with communities to increase awareness and further understanding of the importance of this issue. Child labor is a serious concern within all agricultural industries, as it not only jeopardizes children’s health and safety, but also their attainment of education, which has a lasting impact throughout their lives...In addition to our internal activities and commitments, Universal is proud to be an active and responsible board member of the Elimination of Child Labor in Tobacco Growing Foundation (ECLT), an international organization that seeks to address the challenge of child labor in tobacco growing areas.
