National Action Plan for the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights



The objective of these proposals is to initiate procedures that will place more of an emphasis on the connection between business and human rights and, in this way, help businesses improve the way they take the human rights impacts of their activities into account. Key aims for the action plan are the legislative report, definition of the due diligence obligation, and the application of social criteria in public procurement. In addition to these, an increase in dialogue between businesses and civil society is needed. Companies need information on human rights aspects to support their risk management work, and it is beneficial for civil society to receive information on the preconditions and opportunities related to business. The action plan has been drawn up in a way that facilitates the realisation of listed actions in the next few years, but also provides a foundation to which new actions may be added. Implementation of the action plan will be monitored each year by the Committee for Corporate Social Responsibility.
