Limiting global warming within the levels set by the Paris Agreement would require rapid and unprecedented changes. Given their contribution to climate change, the role of businesses is crucial in this context. This article examines some recent developments concerning the regulation of business activities and the protection of human rights – in particular the Draft Treaty currently being negotiated within the United Nations and the introduction of corporate human rights due diligence processes – with the aim to demonstrate that they also contribute to the fulfillment by States of their international obligations in the fight against climate change.

Abstract

Limiting global warming within the levels set by the Paris Agreement would require rapid and unprecedented changes. Given their contribution to climate change, the role of businesses is crucial in this context. This article examines some recent developments concerning the regulation of business activities and the protection of human rights – in particular the Draft Treaty currently being negotiated within the United Nations and the introduction of corporate human rights due diligence processes – with the aim to demonstrate that they also contribute to the fulfillment by States of their international obligations in the fight against climate change.
