Training on the UNGPs and MNE Declaration
Organized by UN Working Group on Business and Human Rights and ILO
In today's globalized world, businesses are increasingly expected to demonstrate responsible and ethical conduct that respects human rights and labour rights. To address these expectations, two key frameworks have emerged as essential references for businesses: the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and the ILO Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy (MNE Declaration).
Understanding these frameworks and their linkages is crucial for businesses as they navigate the complex landscape of global operations, supply chains, and stakeholder expectations. By familiarizing themselves with the UNGPs and the ILO MNE Declaration, businesses can enhance their understanding of human rights and labour rights issues, align their practices with international standards, and mitigate risks related to social and environmental impacts.
