United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs)

Jurisdiction: Global

The UNGPs were endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council in 2011. They provide a global standard for preventing and addressing the risk of adverse human rights impacts linked to business activities. The Principles provide a roadmap for businesses to “know and show” that they respect human rights in their own operations and through their business relationships, which includes their supply chains.
