The Federal Council expects the private sector to respect human rights in Switzerland and abroad. To help companies put the UN's Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and other international guidelines into practice, it has adopted a dedicated action plan and set up an information platform.
In the National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights, the Federal Council has set out its vision for a responsible approach to human rights by business enterprises. The Federal Council also aims to raise awareness and improve cooperation with the private sector on this issue.
