CIDSE argues that the process towards a binding instrument is an opportunity to strengthen UN Framework

"UN Business & Human Rights Framework: More action required at national and international level to stop human rights abuses by business", Dec 2014

The UN Protect, Respect and Remedy Framework and its Guiding Principles set out clearly that business impacts require a “smart mix” of policy responses that includes not only voluntary measures but also regulation. CIDSE and its member organizations believe that if the Framework and Principles are implemented effectively in this way, they could be a valuable tool for reducing the risk of human rights abuses...The new process towards an international legally binding instrument, if thoughtfully developed, could provide an important additional tool to ensure that businesses respect human rights.
