Expectations for businesses to respect and in some cases help fulfill internationally recognized human rights have increased over the past decade. But also they know how important appropriate management systems are in order to respond to these expectations. And of course they have to protect resources which help to keep their business running.

Several initiatives like the UN Global Compact, the UN Guiding Principles, and the UN “Protect, Respect, Remedy” Framework for Business and Human Rights, have founded businesses key frameworks to meet these expectations. The UN Global Compact is a of stage of leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible and sustainable corporate policies and practices. It is a voluntary initiative which has started since July 2000. It makes calls to companies to commit to merger their business strategies and operations with ten universally accepted principles. The first two deal specifically with human rights.

In June 2011, the UN Human Rights Council formally endorsed the UN Guiding Principles for the implementation of the UN “Protect, Respect, Remedy” Framework. Together, the UN Guiding Principles and the “Protect, Respect, Remedy” Framework are the authoritative reference points for business and human rights. People with problem to their rights to water address to the first of place. In the same year, the UN General Assembly and Human Rights Council agreed to resolutions affirming the human right to water and sanitation (HRWS) as a right equal to all other human rights.

This is all give a clear-cut stand that companies full aware that the risk is very close to water’s crises in our days. The human right to water is a very complex area for understanding it by business. So they work very hard to understand what possibilities they can expect in the future.
