Published

Today, Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Mikael Damberg launched the Swedish Government’s action plan for business and human rights, which has been drawn up in dialogue with businesses, trade union organisations, government agencies and civil society.

The action plan has been developed based on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

“I am very pleased that Sweden is the sixth country in the world to adopt a national action plan for business and human rights. The plan is a step towards supporting Swedish businesses in their corporate social responsibility efforts in Sweden and abroad. Active CSR work is a competitive advantage that helps to strengthen Swedish export companies,” says Mr Damberg.
