Paul van het Heijden and Yvonne Erkens would like to inform you on a project on fundamental labour rights compliance that we started at Leiden Law School.
May 2018 we began collecting Codes of Conduct of multinational enterprises to build a publicly accessible database. We have now created the DataBase on Business Ethics (DBBE), https://www.db-business-ethics.org.
Yesterday was the official launch: Official Opening Database on Business Ethics (DBBE)
In the DBBE you will find Codes of Conduct of hundreds of multinational businesses from Europe and the United States. Publications on fundamental labour rights are included as well. The public can subscribe to a news letter.
We use this database to do research, focusing on fundamental labour rights. We hope others will do so as well.
The database is an ongoing project: we continue to work on collecting codes from all over the world and from all kinds of enterprises.
