Human Rights Guide for SME

The Directorate-General "Enterprise and Industry" of the European Commission has published an introductory guide to human rights for SMEs [pdf, 2 MB] which is consistent with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
"In recent years human rights has become an increasingly important aspect of corporate social responsibility. The European Commission’s new policy on CSR recognises the need for enterprises to integrate human rights concerns in their operations and business strategies."
