The European Commission invites you to provide feedback on a Draft Guide on Human Rights and SMEs.
In the Communication on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) published last October, the European Commission identified the development of a guidance for small and medium-sized enterprises, based on the corporate responsibility to respect human rights, as one of its priority actions.
A Draft Guide has been produced to provide practical advice to SMEs on how to meet the expectations of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Rights.
You are invited to submit your comments on the Webpage of the Open consultation .
This online consultation is open until 26 September 2012.
In parallel, the Commission is also developing specific human rights guidance in 3 sectors:
- employment and recruitment agencies
- ICT/telecommunications sector
- oil and gas sector.
