Social justice activists have argued against the death penalty for years. Now, it’s the business world's turn, Richard Branson argues in an op-ed for Fast Company. A global group of executives, spearheaded by Branson, have launched the Business Leaders’ Declaration Against the Death Penalty, calling on governments everywhere to end the practice and asking other business leaders to join them.

Capital punishment has already been on the decline and public opinion is now largely against it. Business leaders can help make the case for universal abolition. “Increasingly, consumers, employers, and investors expect businesses and their leaders to take a stand on critical issues of our time,” Branson writes. “If business can lobby for its own good, the argument goes, it must also be a lobbyist for the greater good of humanity.”
