Online Consultation: Draft Guide on Human Rights for SMEs


The online
consultation on the draft guide for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
on human rights (PDF) is now open. This draft guide has been produced in the
course of a European project "Capacity building for SMEs in the field of human
rights", financed by the European Commission. It is one of the priority actions
of the European Commission's strategy on corporate social responsibility for
2011-2014.

The aim of this guide is to
provide practical advice to SMEs on how to meet the expectations of the UN
Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

The Commission would welcome
any comments on this draft guide by 25 September. In particular, comments are
invited for the following questions:

  • Is the guide
    consistent with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights? If not,
    how should it be made more consistent?

  • Is the guide practically useful for
    SMEs? Do you have any suggestions for how to make it more practically useful?

 

 

 The draft guide
is accessible through:www.global-csr.com/fileadmin/Our_Approach/120823_Full_Guide_SMEs_Draft.pdf
