The Principles are not just a reiteration of workers’ rights. They
are an explicit acknowledgement that recognising rights is not enough –
businesses and other stakeholders must actively work to enable workers
in their operations and supply chains to access those rights in meaningful ways.
The Principles are particularly aimed at retail businesses, but they
are also relevant for supplier businesses, governments, NGOs, trade
unions and multi-stakeholder initiatives.
We encourage all interested stakeholders to support them.
