A cyclist passes a building where a banner in support of the campaign for the Responsible Business Initiative (RBI) hangs in the lobby. If the initiative, which will be put to a referendum in November 2020, becomes law Swiss companies would be held accountable in the Swiss courts for human rights and environmental misconduct anywhere in the world. In addition they would have to carry out appropriate due diligence regarding human rights and the environment. However, a weaker counter-proposal will automatically be put in place if the initiative is rejected. Either way there will be a move towards more responsible business practices.
