The UN Guiding Principles Reporting Framework is the first comprehensive guidance for companies to report on human rights issues in line with their responsibility to respect human rights. This responsibility is set out in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (pdf,
1Mb), the authoritative global standard in this field. The UNGP Reporting Framework was launched in February 2015.
The Reporting Framework provides a concise set of questions to which any company should strive to answer in order to know and show that it is meeting its responsibility to respect human rights in practice. It offers companies clear and straightforward guidance on how to answer these questions with relevant and meaningful information about their human rights policies, processes and performance.
Nestlé was an early adopter of the UNGP Reporting Framework. Our CSV Report 2015 was the first to be published using the Reporting Framework.
