Areas of Focus in 2017:
Release of U.S. National Action Plan on Responsible Business Conduct
Following ongoing and extensive advocacy, in 2016 the U.S. government released the first U.S. National Action Plan on Responsible Business Conduct. We are calling upon the Trump Administration to extend upon the precedents established in the National Action Plan and on all stakeholders to work together to build upon the commitments made by the Obama Administration.
Launch of the Corporate Crime Principles
In partnership with Amnesty International we launched the Corporate Crimes Principles: Advancing Investigations and Prosecutions in Human Rights Cases in 2016.
Establishment of the Learning Lab on Public Procurement and Human Rights
We established the International Learning Lab on Public Procurement and Human Rights in partnership with the Harrison Institute for Public Law at Georgetown University and the Danish Institute for Human Rights.
