Event Launches the Global Rule of Law Business Principles
The Atlantic Council-LexisNexis Global Rule of Law Business Principles aspire to be a set of commonly held principles to which companies that conduct their business globally—regardless of industry, or locale—can support. A platform for companies to pursue higher standards of ROL, the code seeks to highlight the impact that businesses can have in promoting the rule of law by raising the collective awareness of its stakeholders, including governments, vendors, and organizations with which they do business. You can read the full, draft Principles here.
The Council will continue to work with LexisNexis and the UN Global Compact to develop this initiative.
