Business and Human Rights Related Services

Businesses have the responsibility to respect human rights whilst states have the duty to protect human rights.

The ‘UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights’ was unanimously endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council in 2011. It is the authoritative global standard on business and human rights and the 31 principles set expectations of states and business about how to prevent and address the negative impacts of business and human rights.

The Guiding Principles apply to all states and all businesses worldwide and today are being implemented by companies, governments and their stakeholders. Indeed, since 2011, laws, regulations, policies, national action plans and tools have been developed and launched to clarify how businesses must take up their responsibility in respecting human rights both through their supply chains and in their stakeholder engagements.
