The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGP) contains the ‘Protect – Respect – Remedy Framework’.
Special Representative John Ruggie was the driving force this behind UNGP and the Framework. That is why the framework sometimes is called the ‘Ruggie Framework’.
The ISO 26000 core subject “Human Rights’ is aligned with the UN Guiding Principles.
ISO 26000 experts (f.e. Sandra Atler) worked for more than three years closely together with the team of John Ruggie to align both guidelines.
The use of the ISO 26000 concept ‘sphere of influence’ in the ISO 26000 Human Rights core subject is also aligned with the Ruggie Framework.
