The Netherlands adopted an inaugural NAP on Business and Human Rights in 2013.  A National Baseline Assessment (NBA) was conducted by the Netherlands Institute for Human Rights in 2020, and a second Dutch NAP on Business and Human Rights was adopted in November 2022.


(NB: The Netherlands developed an international corporate social responsibility (ICSR) policy in 2020 which focuses on the role of companies under the UN guiding principles (pillar 2). The ICSR policy is one of the building blocks of the new NAP.)
