Press release: NGO initiative seeks mandatory human rights due diligence for all Swiss companies

"Global Business? Global Responsibility!"

In mid-March 2015 Parliament narrowly rejected a motion from the Commission for greater corporate responsibility. So although the problem is recognized, greater pressure from civil society is required to introduce mandatory requirements. This is why a popular initiative is being launched today by a broad coalition of different organizations. The Responsible Business Initiative aims to require that all Swiss companies carry out human rights and environmental due diligence... The 66 launching organizations are now collecting signatures for the Responsible Business Initiative. Further information can be found...at www.initiative-multinationales.ch...
