Why was this petition rejected?

It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.

Petitions need to call on the Government or Parliament to take a specific action.

We're not sure whether you'd like all public bodies to be required to do this, as in the title of your petition, or whether you'd like all companies to have to do this, as in the main text of your petition.

You could start a new petition explaining clearly what you would like the Government or Parliament to do.
