Who’s behind it? – UN Working Group on the issue of human rights and transnational corporations and other business enterprises (2019)
How can it help? – In the present report, the UN Working Group on Business and Human Rights highlights the differentiated and disproportionate impact of business activities on women and girls. It develops a gender framework for the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and proposes gender guidance specific to each of the 31 guiding principles. Both States and business enterprises are invited to consider the gender framework and guidance set out in the present report and the annex thereto when implementing the UNGPs.
