UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights
The Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights are meant to support the implementation of the United Nations “Protect, Respect and Remedy” Framework. This set of guidelines seeks to provide a global standard for preventing and addressing the risk of adverse human rights impacts linked to business activity. They were proposed by the UN Special Representative for Business and Human Rights, John Ruggie, and endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council in June 2011. As they cover all areas of business, they are also applicable to the financial sector. [Source: Swiss Sustainable Finance]
