Our commitment to respect fundamental human rights of our employees, people working
for our suppliers, and our customers reflects Microsoft’s company mission to help
people and businesses throughout the world realize their full potential.
Microsoft recognizes that as a leading technology provider with global operations,
our business can help to promote – or be used to impede – human rights. Our approach
to human rights is aligned with the United Nations Guiding Principles for Business
and Human Rights and we accept the important responsibility we have to respect human
rights and we aid to bring the power of technology to bear to promote respect for
Microsoft's global human rights statement has been developed
in recognition of the United Nations Guiding Principles and is a broad framework
and common set of principles that apply to our business practices.(Spanish language version.)
To help advance the thinking and discussion in the area of ICT and human rights
responsibilities and commitment, we established a
Technology and Human Rights Center.
