UN Working Group publish report on reflections from the 2014 Third Annual Forum on Business and Human Rights

This report presented at the 29th session of the UN Human Rights Council focuses on the actions that business enterprises have taken to meet their corporate responsibility to respect human rights. It is based on the presentations and key lessons from the thematic session entitled ‘Respect in practice: progress and challenges in implementing the corporate responsibility to respect’ held during the third annual Forum on Business and Human Rights in December 2014. The session was convened by the UN Working Group on Business and Human Rights and was organised by GBI and the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRRC). The report draws on the session report prepared by GBI and BHRRC and further includes the Working Group’s observations and recommendations for the consideration of stakeholders.
