Mercuria on the Swiss Responsible Business Initiative counter-proposal
23.11.2017

As a global business, we recognize our responsibility to respect human rights and conduct business in an ethical manner wherever we operate. We therefore welcome the decision of the Legal Affairs Committee of the Council of States to propose an indirect counter project to the Swiss Responsible Business Initiative.

We believe that an indirect counter-proposal, developed by the Committee will produce an effective and workable legal aid.  Mercuria is happy to contribute to this process by providing its expertise, along with the civil society and other companies.

Mercuria fully supports the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights which were developed by John Ruggie and his team in consultation with many stakeholder groups.
