Three years after the release of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, many companies have made significant strides in their commitment to respect human rights, while others have yet to publically embrace the UN’s guidance. As a result, some stakeholders have called for stricter, binding requirements that would require companies to conduct human rights due diligence. And yet, other stakeholders point to the tremendous impact the Guiding Principles have had to date. They argue that the solution isn’t binding requirements, but rather greater focus and effort on using them as a tool to raise the bar on human rights for all companies. This one-hour debate-style session will delve into the question of whether the Guiding Principles are meeting their objectives or whether binding requirements would spur progress.
