About the National Action Plan
While business activities generate investment, jobs and economic growth, they can also have undesirable side effects.
The State duty to protect
The duty to protect is based on Switzerland's existing obligations under international law which are concretized for the business sector.
Corporate activities do not only lead to investment, jobs and economic growth, but can also have undesirable side-effects.
Access to remedy
States and the corporate sector should permit access to effective remedy for those who are affected.
