The right to a healthy environment: Resolution 76/300's potential impact on businesses

In July, the UN General Assembly passed a resolution recognising the right to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment as a human right (“Resolution 76/300”). The move follows similar resolutions adopted by the UN Human Rights Council and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe last year, and has been deemed a “catalyst for accelerated action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals” by the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and the environment.

In our full briefing, we provide:

  1. a summary of the key provisions of Resolution 76/300
  2. reflections on its potential impact, in particular on UK businesses; and
  3. considerations on how Resolution 76/300 fits within broader legal and behavioural developments surrounding corporate human rights and environmental due diligence.
