Webinar Series on
Child Labour Due Diligence
The Federal Council promotes responsible business conduct within the frame of the National Action Plan (NAP) for Business and Human Rights and expects from Swiss companiess to respect human rights and to show efforts in ending all forms of child exploitation in supply chains.

If a risk is identified, companies need to trace back their supply chain, identify and manage adverse impacts and report annually about the measures taken.
