DETAIL

Business and human rights, sustainability reporting and responsible business conduct more generally are high on many agendas and growing in importance for business. Companies are being confronted with these themes from various angles: human rights and responsible business conduct are attracting increased media coverage; consumer organizations are becoming more vocal in their demands for information on production conditions and routes to market; non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and trade unions are approaching companies with requests for information on human rights impacts on the societies in which these businesses operate.

With the endorsement of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGP) by the UN Human Rights Council in June 2011, there is now a general consensus on the respective roles and responsibilities of governments and companies with regard to business and human rights.


SCOPE OF TALK

  • To provide information on national, regional and global trends and developments regarding business and human rights, sustainability reporting and responsible business conduct.
  • To raise awareness of the content of the main international instruments, initiatives and policies and their impact on companies, such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, GRI, UN Global Compact, ISO 26000, ILO MNE Declaration and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
  • To provide companies with guidance on how to implement the UN Guiding Principles “step by step” and starting sustainability reporting.
  • To assist employers’ organizations in developing a policy strategy and service offer in the area of human rights, sustainability reporting and responsible business conduct.
  • To know where and how to get support.
