Follow-up opinion on the draft legally binding instrument on transnational corporations and other business enterprises and human rights

The CNCDH has reviewed the second revised draft of the legally binding international instrument aiming to regulate, in international human rights law, the activities of transnational corporations and other business enterprises, published in August 2020

The CNCDH has reviewed the second revised draft of the legally binding international instrument aiming to regulate, in international human rights law, the activities of transnational corporations and other business enterprises, published in August 2020. It emphasises the improvements made as regards its scope of application and coordination with international law, and commends the reinforcement of victim protection and access to legal remedies. However, it draws attention to continuing major shortcomings, including the watered-down definition of due diligence and the need for better coordination between civil, criminal and administrative liabilities.
