ENNHRI welcomes the Council of Europe High-level Seminar on Human rights and Business as an important opportunity to promote the effective implementation of global and regional human rights mechanisms across Europe.

The seminar aimed to raise awareness about Recommendation CM/Rec(2016)3 of the Committee of Ministers to member States on human rights and business (‘The Recommendation’). The Recommendation was adopted by the Committee of Ministers on 2 March 2016 to provide guidance on the implementation of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (‘UNGPs’) at European level.
