A Guide to Human Rights from the EU Commission

SWEDISH SUMMARY: Jag har ofta i samtal märkt att många känner en viss osäkerhet hur man på bästa sätt arbetar med mänskliga rättigheter inom sin verksamhet. Mänskliga rättigheter är såklart en viktig fråga inte bara vad gäller leverantörskedjan utan också inom alla andra delar av en verksamhet. EU-kommisionen har utkommit med en guide ”Mitt företag och mänskliga rättigheter” som jag tycker är en bra, enkel och lärorik handledning.

I have often in discussions realized that a lot of colleagues in industry and elsewhere feel uncertainty when it comes to managing human rights issues. Human rights is fundamental in everything we do, not only in supply chain management, although very often discussed in the context of third party manufacturers in developing economies. To me however it is always important to remember that pretty much every decision we make affect or could affect human rights. So how to deal with the issue?

The EU Commission has issued a guide for small and medium-sized enterprises called ”My business and human rights”. I have to admit that it definitely also brings value to someone like me who works in a multinational company like Pfizer. The guide is an easy read, a lot of valuable information nicely presented. It is definitely a very good introduction to the field. Read it, you will not regret it.
