Author: Entreprises pour les Droits de l’Homme (EDH), Published on: 25 January 2011
[Contribution submitted to the consultation on 5 October 2010 convened by MEDEF at the request of John Ruggie] One of the most interesting aspects of the April 2010 report by John Ruggie, UN Special Representative [on business & human rights]…is the light that it sheds on the impact of the costs of the conflicts and disputes for those involved, and on the quality of due diligence required by companies exposed to the risks generated by violations of human rights, in the context of globalization…EDH seeks to contribute to the debate on the Ruggie report by sharing its member companies’ thinking on the topic, as well as a number of good practices designed to embed respect for human rights in a continuous improvement approach.
