[DOC] Business & human rights: Reflections on progress made and challenges ahead

For the future there are two scenarios. The first is to continue as we are... There is an alternative scenario. It means recognising that without the positive involvement of the corporate sector we cannot win for human rights. It means recognising that regardless of states or the existence of states, companies have responsibility for their impact on human rights... It means ending the sterile controversy between voluntarism and mandatory measures... Above all it means spelling out in clear terms – in...accessible non-treaty language... – what the human rights responsibilities of companies are. [refers to BT, BP, Shell, Total, Union Carbide (part of Dow Chemical)]
