CHILDREN’S RIGHTS AND THE POST-2015 DEVELOPMENT AGENDA AT GLOBAL COMPACT+15 (23 JUNE 2015, UN HEADQUARTERS, NEW YORK CITY) / How do these Principles align with the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights?

Principle 1 of the Children’s Rights and Business Principles applies the framework of the UN Guiding Principles in the context of children. It therefore calls on business to apply the “Policy Commitment – Due Diligence – Remediation” approach to human rights when considering impacts on children.

The Principles were developed in close consultation with those involved in the development of the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, to ensure that the distinction between respect and support actions has been defined accurately.
