Firstly, ICMM is very grateful to John Ruggie for his unstinting commitment to develop a clear and comprehensive framework that clarifies and untangles the state-business human rights nexus. We recognize the professional and personal investment (and sacrifices) that his work has entailed, and the strong emphasis throughout on multi-stakeholder engagement. We believe that the outcomes will be of lasting benefit to all with an interest in ensuring that business supports, rather than hinders, the realization and enjoyment of human rights.
ICMM and its members welcome the SRSG’s latest report, which sets out ‘Guiding Principles’ for the Implementation of the United Nations ‘Protect, Respect and Remedy Framework’. Collectively, the Guiding Principles offer a coherent and comprehensive basis for ensuring that the distinctive yet complimentary responsibilities of states and business with respect to human rights can be understood and effectively discharged.
