Discussion at a digital global map.

The state's duty to protect

States must guarantee protection against human rights violations in their territory. States are thus also obliged to demand the compliance with human rights on the part of business enterprises.

Activities of the Federal Government

The Federal Government will strengthen sustainability issues such as human rights due diligence in public procurement, in the promotion of enterprises and in publicly owned enterprises.

Assistance offered by the Federal Government to companies

Numerous services are available to companies to fulfil human rights due diligence requirements. These include advisory, information and orientation services.
