REGISTER NOW: Business briefing on the second revised draft treaty on human rights and business

IOE invites you to take part in a virtual session on Thursday 15 October at 14:00 (CET) to discuss the business assessment of the draft UN treaty.

Human Rights are a key concern for the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) and its member federations, which represent more than 50 million companies around the world. IOE has undertaken strong efforts in raising awareness and building capacity on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and on responsible business conduct. We are deeply committed to work on the eradication of forced and child labour and to promote the Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work as well as the UN Human Rights Conventions.

From the very beginning, IOE has engaged in the work of the Open-ended intergovernmental working group on transnational corporations and other business enterprises with respect to human rights. We have, in close cooperation with Business at OECD (BIAC) and BusinessEurope, developed the attached position paper on the second revised draft treaty, which we would like to discuss with you in a digital meeting on Thursday 15 October at 14:00 CET.

We would greatly appreciate, if you could join this important interactive exchange.
