UN Guiding Principles as reference point in analysing companies’ approach to human rights - 26 September, 2012.

In the course of a European project “Capacity building for SMEs in the field of human rights”, financed by the European Commission, a draft guide for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) on human rights has been produced. Five SMEs –Danimex, StartPeople, Sealock, FarmaHem and Van Bavel –were analysed according to the UN Guiding Principles for business and human rights.

The project is one of the priority actions of the European Commission’s strategy on corporate social responsibility for 2011-2014. The draft guide does not necessarily reflect the official position of the European Commission and its aim is to provide practical advice to SMEs on how to meet the expectations of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
