Colombia – Equality

The Colombian National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights [page 6]

This Plan is intended to help overcome weaknesses from the past and build stronger trust among society, business enterprises and the State. Thus, businessmen and social and union organisations are required to be willing to respect the rights of ethnic groups, women, children, adolescents, LGBTI, people with disabilities, union movements and other minorities.
