ICT Sector Guide on Implementing the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights
Who’s behind it? – European Commission (2013)
How can it help? – This Guide, developed by Shift and the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) applies the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights to the specific context of the information and communication technologies (ICT) sector. It is intended to help ICT companies “translate” respect for human rights into their own systems and company cultures. It summarises what the Guiding Principles expect, offers a range of ideas and examples for how to put them into practice, and links the user to additional resources that can support their work. It does not propose a set management system but rather leaves companies the flexibility they need to implement the Guiding Principles in their own particular circumstances.
