Clifford Chance briefing on US Natl. Action Plan consultation
"Client briefing: US Government Holds First Consultation on National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights", 19 Dec 2014
On December 15, 2014, the US Government held its first public consultation on the White House National Action Plan on Responsible Business Conduct in New York City at the NYU Stern School of Business. The event was the first of four national consultations announced by the Government to develop the US NAP. The consultations are open to public participation, but the discussions are not publicized. Topics covered in the consultations – and likely to be addressed in the NAP – included US Government and company reporting on social risks, land rights and agricultural investments, the extractive sector, trade and investment agreements, and the financial sector.
