Dear ZCA Members,

We would like to inform you that the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) has published its mapping study. The mapping study complements the sizing study realized by the SRIC in partnership with STSA. The mapping study’s objective is to provide a clear picture of the commodity trading industry in Switzerland in relation to human rights and business and to serve as a basis for the development of the guidance mandated by Federal authorities. More specifically its aims to define an overall approach to the value chain that fits the sector, to identify relevant human rights risks within the sector, as well as areas of leverage and to inform bout standards and good practices already in place.

You can find the study under the following link:
