A Binding Treaty for Transnationals


A UN treaty on business and human rights would require companies worldwide to human rights and environmental due diligence along their supply chain, and would improve access to remedy for people affected by human rights violations.

From October 25 to 29, 2021, the seventh round of negotiations on such a UN treaty takes place at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva.

In this context, Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung supports organizations involved in the Treaty Alliance and publishes a video explaining the importance of such a treaty for human rights, social rights and the environment.

How can self-regulatory corporate approaches and a binding UN treaty on business and human rights lead to a fairer global economy? Together with IG Metall, IndustriALL Global Union and the Global Policy Forum, the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation is hosting a side-event on Thursday, 28 October 2021, to tackle this question.
