Informations récentes sur la 5ème session du processus d'élaboration du Traité de l'ONU sur les entreprises et les droits de l'homme

Les États se sont réunis la semaine dernière pour négocier/discuter le projet de Traité révisé sur les sociétés transnationales (STN) et autres entreprises (en anglais)

Please find attached IOE’s summary of the 5th session of the UN’s Inter-Governmental Working Group on transnational corporations and other business enterprises with respect to human rights (IGWG), which met from 14 to 18 October in Geneva.

The IGWG negotiated/discussed the Revised Draft Treaty prepared by the Chair (Ecuador in June 2019).

Prior to the 5th session, IOE released a Joint Business Response to the Revised Draft Treaty, which it drafted with Business at OECD (BIAC) and Business Europe. This joint response describes the business community's:

  1. Commitment to respecting human rights - in context.
  2. Substantive concerns with the Revised Draft Treaty.

IOE participated in the 5th session all week, supported by USCIB and the IOE's partner company/law firm Littler, to follow the discussions and explain the business position on the Revised Draft Treaty.
