The Danish Ethical Trading Initiative invites you to a debate meeting about new international guidelines and ethical trade on february 8th 2012.
In June 2011 the UN agreed on a new set of guidelines (United Nations Guiding Principles: UNGPs) describing how businesses should handle their responsibility towards human rights and employment rights. The guiding principles apply for every company around the world.
Since these UNGPs were passed they have become a part of the foundation of CSR strategies for i.a. the OECD and the EU. Accordingly, the European Commision launched a new CSR strategy for 2011-2014 in October 2011.
What impact will the new international and European guidelines have on our present approach to Ethical Trade?
