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.
