BUSINESS & HUMAN RIGHTS

Today, global business enterprises are causing serious human rights violations in the course of their business in developing countries, such as labour rights violations and exploitation, deprivation of land rights and indigenous people’s rights, environmental contamination causing devastating impacts for people’s rights to health and livelihood, and so on.
We call on multinational corporations to respect human rights in the course of their business in accordance with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
