Menschenrechtliche Sorgfaltspflichten und Umweltstandards in Lieferketten gesetzlich verankern

AgrarKoordination - 8. Mai 2020 - 16:12
Pressemitteilung der Hamburger Initiative Lieferkettengesetz Hamburg, den 8. Mai 2020 – Die Corona-Krise führt uns auf dramatische Weise vor Augen, in welchem Maße Transparenz und Sorgfalt in globalen Lieferketten in unser aller Interesse liegen. Die Krise verdeutlicht: Wir brauchen ein Lieferkettengesetz, das Unternehmen verpflichtet, die Einhaltung von menschenrechtlichen Sorgfaltspflichten und Umweltstandards in ihren globalen Lieferketten sicherzustellen. Dafür treten wir als Hamburger Initiative Lieferkettengesetz auch im Hinblick auf die aktuell laufenden Koalitionsverhandlungen in Hamburg ein. Die Forderungen, die SPD und Grüne in den Programmen für die Bürgerschaftswahlen in Bezug auf ein Lieferkettengesetz aufgestellt haben, werden von uns befürwortet. Wir appellieren an die Verantwortlichen für die Koalitionsverhandlungen, ihre Forderungen nun zu konkretisieren und im Rahmen der Koalition umzusetzen.

Der Koalitionsvertrag sollte ein klares Bekenntnis zum Lieferkettengesetz und zum entsprechenden Engagement dafür im Bundesrat beinhalten. Und Hamburg sollte mit gutem Beispiel vorangehen – gerade in der öffentlichen Beschaffung besteht hier noch Handlungsbedarf.

Julia Sievers, Referentin der Agrar Koordination und Vertreterin der Hamburger Initiative Lieferkettengesetz: „Die Vorgaben für die öffentliche Beschaffung in Hamburg müssen im Hinblick auf Sorgfaltspflichten für Menschenrechte und Umweltstandards konkretisiert und verschärft werden. Internationale Standards wie zum Beispiel die UN-Leitprinzipien für Wirtschaft und Menschenrechte sollten eine verbindliche Grundlage sein.“

Christine Priessner, Projektkoordinatorin „Fair Trade Stadt Hamburg“ und Vertreterin der Hamburger Initiative Lieferkettengesetz: „Wir begrüßen die zukünftige Berichtspflicht der Öffentlichen Unternehmen der Stadt Hamburg gemäß Deutschem Nachhaltigkeitskodex (DNK). Die Berichtspflicht alleine ist jedoch zu wenig, um der menschenrechtlichen Sorgfaltspflicht zu genügen. Öffentliche Unternehmen müssen zu weiteren Maßnahmen verpflichtet werden – u.a. einer Risikoanalyse, Maßnahmen zur Minimierung menschenrechtlicher Risiken, einem entsprechenden Beschwerdemechanismus und einem Mechanismus zur Reparation.“

Press Release: World Future Council COVID-19 Statement

World Future Council - 8. Mai 2020 - 11:40
Covid-19 crisis: Changemakers from the World Future Council urge global leaders to develop a just and resilient world

Hamburg, 8th May 2020 – Representatives of the World Future Council from all continents have signed a letter to world leaders in which they outline recommendations and calls for immediate targeted actions required to rebuild a resilient and just world now and after the Covid-19 pandemic. The coronavirus pandemic shows how fragile the current international system is and that common, global solutions to this challenge are needed. They are urging the need for a strong and efficient multilateral system, global leadership, collective action, and shared responsibilities in support of current and future generations.

Out of deep respect for life on earth, the World Future Council Members urge to address the planet’s interconnected crises, ensure resilience for the long-term, and to act urgently to implement far reaching, appropriate measures. Ensuring the right to health for all, providing financial and investment relief, creating decent and sustainable jobs, halting armed conflicts, securing children’s rights, empowering and protecting women and girls, valuing health workers, caretakers and service providers, respecting nature and its life cycles, accelerating action on climate change, and enhancing effective global cooperation are the ten claims the Council is making.

The letter was submitted to heads of UN agencies and Heads of States today. Among the recommendations to “build back better” after Covid-19 are the significant reduction of developing countries’ foreign debt alongside with better access to sustainable investment for developing countries. They also call for a global ceasefire and the reduction of military budgets to release funds for public health and sustainable development. Furthermore, the Council Members urge for the support of sustainable and fair economies and dissemination of green technologies such as renewable energy and agroecology as well as the protection and restoration of ecosystems to prevent future pandemics.

“Viruses know no boundaries. We therefore demand long-term global action today to build resilience for the future! We need to be mindful of the links between human health, planetary health and the destruction of our ecosystems.” says signatory Helmy Abouleish, CEO of SEKEM, Egypt.

“The Covid-19 pandemic hits the vulnerable members of our societies the most. Children’s rights a being cut, women feel an increase in their workload and are more exposed to domestic violence. Healthcare workers and other frontliners bear the brunt of this crisis. They all need to be treated with respect, today and in the future” states Maria Fernanda Espinosa, President of the 73rd UN General Assembly.

“Governments are now working to build the world after the pandemic. This is an opportunity to create more resilient economies. Economic stimulus packages must therefore prioritise green technologies such as renewable energy and agroecology, in line with the Paris agreement of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees”, says Dr. Tony Colman, Climate Change Researcher and former UK MP.

“This is a turning point for humankind, and it is our duty to rebuild our world in a way that safeguards life on earth. This is why determined, strong and immediate global action is key to build back our world in a way that respects people and planet” says Alexandra Wandel, Executive Director of the World Future Council.

Kreuzworträtsel zu Nachhaltigkeitszielen

#hamburg mal fair - 8. Mai 2020 - 11:30
Kreuzworträtsel zu Nachhaltigkeitszielen

Um unsere natürliche Umwelt zu schützen und globale Gerechtigkeit zu erreichen stehen wir vor ökologischen, gesellschaftlichen und wirtschaftlichen Herausforderungen. Die Vereinten Nationen haben 2015 die sogenannte Agenda 2030 verabschiedet, in der sie sich zu 17 Zielen für eine bessere Zukunft verpflichten. Für die Umsetzung dieser Nachhaltigkeitsziele sind alle gefragt: Politik, Wirtschaft, Wissenschaft und Zivilgesellschaft.

In unserem Lernsnack bieten wir an, ein kurzes Video zu den 17 Zielen zu gucken und anschließend ein Kreuzworträtzel zu den Inhalten des Videos zu lösen. Also: Gut aufpassen, wenn ihr euch jetzt das Video anguckt, damit ihr gleich das Rätsel lösen könnt!

Und, konntet ihr euch alles merken? Falls ihr Probleme bei der Beantwortung einzelner Fragen habt, könnt ihr das Video ja nochmal angucken.

Kreuzworträtsel online lösen

Als Einstieg in das Thema Nachhaltigkeitsziele der UN haben wir das Tool XWord gewählt. Unsere Lernsnacks erstellen wir gemeinsam mit unserer Honorarkraft Larissa Gumgowski. Ihre Einschätzung zu der Plattform XWord gibt sie hier ab:

Das Tool ist sehr unkompliziert zu verwenden und führt schnell zu einem sichtbaren Ergebnis, daher macht das Erstellen echt Spaß! Das fertige Rätsel lässt sich dann über einen Link abrufen und versenden, auf der eigenen Website einbinden oder als Bild exportieren, falls man es z.B. ausgedruckt verwenden möchte. Meiner Erfahrung nach eignet es sich im Bildungskontext gut, um Gelerntes zu wiederholen oder um konkrete Begriffe und Bezeichnungen zu üben bzw. abzufragen. Die Herausforderung bei komplexeren Themen ist, die Fragen so präzise zu formulieren, dass genau ein einziger Begriff die Antwort ist. Ein Nachteil: Auf der Seite von XWords wird Werbung eingeblendet, um das kostenlose Angebot zu finanzieren. Das lässt sich nur durch einen Premium-Account für 6 Euro pro Rätsel vermeiden.

The World during and after Covid-19: Statement of the World Future Council

World Future Council - 8. Mai 2020 - 10:40

Covid-19: The World Future Council’s Call on Governments, Multilateral Organisations, Leaders and Policy-makers of the World to Take Action

COVID/19 has been a wakeup call for humanity. The pandemic has created unprecedented emergencies. To overcome the current catastrophic scenario we need to act now, not only to respond to the health crisis but to build a just and sustainable future. We urgently need a strong and efficient multilateral system, we need global leadership, collective action and shared responsibilities in support of current and future generations.

Immediate targeted actions required out of deep respect for life on earth:  

  1. Ensuring the right to health for all

Health is a fundamental human right. International solidarity is required, so that all people in all countries have access to health services of quality, leaving no one behind. There must be full access to prevention, diagnosis, treatment and medicines. The international community and governments have an obligation to ensure universal health coverage (UHC) at national level. Governments also need to ensure the right to clean air, clean water and sanitation, as well as the right to healthy and nutritious food. Children, refugees, internally displaced persons, elderly and persons with disabilities are amongst the most vulnerable. They deserve special attention. We promote integrative health which supports resilience of the people and the planet.

  1. Providing financial and investment relief

We urge OECD governments to support the already established Global Humanitarian Response Plan and the Response and Recovery Fund for poor and middle-income countries. We underscore the necessity that governments drop austerity policies, stop evictions and expand public budgets for the health of people and the health of our planet. Countries need to prioritise investments to guarantee fundamental rights to health, water, food, housing and education. In order « to build back better », the significant reduction of developing countries’ foreign debt will have to be complemented by better access to sustainable investment for developing countries

  1. Creating decent and sustainable jobs

National governments as well as international economic and financial stimulus and recovery packages should secure millions of decent jobs, specifically for young women and men who are affected most by the crisis and enhance green new deals. COVID-19 measures should support sustainable, fair economies and disseminate green technologies such as renewable energy and agroecology. This requires to « build back better » with a new economy that addresses inequalities and that is more resilient, greener, healthier and safer for all. Economic stimulus packages must support meeting the Paris goal of limiting climate change to 1.5 degrees.

  1. Halting armed conflicts

Armed conflicts kill many innocent people, aggravate the health and economic impact of pandemics, destroy the natural environment and thwart measures to contain the pandemic and deliver healthcare.  We emphatically endorse the United Nations initiative for a global ceasefire, and call on all warring parties in armed conflicts to lay down their arms and work in cooperation with the UN Special Envoys for sustainable and peaceful resolutions to the conflicts. We also call on governments to honour their obligations under the UN Charter to resolve international conflicts through diplomacy, mediation, arbitration and adjudication, and to reduce military budgets in order to release funds for public health and sustainable development.

  1. Securing children’s rights

Millions of girls and boys are experiencing a deep cut in the enjoyment of their rights like the right to education, to health, to food, to play and to protection. We urge governments to develop measures to keep them healthy, to provide them with water, sanitation and food, to allow children to continue their education and to protect them and their mothers from violence.

  1. Empowering and protecting women and girls

Women and girls are specifically impacted by the current lock-down by an increase in domestic violence and in their workload. They are the majority of health workers and their care work must be valued with adequate pay and childcare support. Reproductive health services also need be provided.

  1. Valuing health workers and service providers

Tribute needs to be given to all health workers, caregivers, food and basic services’ providers for being at the frontline of this pandemic and for putting their own lives at risk to serve and protect us all. They need to receive fair pay and benefits.

  1. Respecting nature and its life cycles

In order to prevent future pandemics we need to recognise the links between human health, infectious diseases, destruction of our ecosystems and planetary health. Every country must do its part to develop and implement comprehensive legislation to further sustainable energy and agroecological practices, protect animal welfare, ban wildlife sales, protect wildlife and ban trafficking of wildlife across borders. Markets for live animals need to be studied to address the disease vectors. Policymakers need to fight corruption that allows these activities to continue even when they are banned or illegal. They also need to protect and restore ecosystems, protect biodiversity and work towards an increase of protected areas on land and sea, as well as a substantial worldwide increase in forest cover, including through afforestation and reforestation, in order to ensure living organisms in the biosphere have the needed space without human interference. Actions addressed above should be integrated in the 2020/2021 meetings of the UN, the UN Biodiversity Summit and the World Food Systems Summit.

  1. Accelerating action on climate change

Addressing the COVID-19 crisis cannot come at the expense of solving the climate crisis: Governments need to continue developing rapid and far-reaching decarbonization of our energy and food systems by producing clean energy and implementing energy efficiency measures in the consumption. Governments must set domestic 100% renewable energy targets to keep fossil fuels underground and unleash investments to scale up across all sectors, including power generation, mobility, heating, cooling and cooking. We need to mitigate climate change through agroecology and sustainable forests. Investments should be redirected from subsidizing fossil fuels towards meeting the Paris Climate Agreement Goals. Action addressed above should be reinforced at the next UN Climate Summit.

  1. Enhancing effective global cooperation 

In order to better manage pandemics and other global health and environment issues, the UN should enhance its internal coordination mechanisms and ensure effective cooperation between UN agencies and a more systematic implementation at national level.

Business as usual is not an option. We must lay the foundations for a peaceful world of solidarity, equity and sustainability, by spreading effective future just policy solutions.

The World Future Council is composed of 50 eminent persons from around the world and was founded in 2007. We work with policy makers to bring the interests of present and future generations to the centre of policy-making, promoting the spread of future just policies across the world. We call for the international community to support and bolster the work of the United Nations and to implement commitments such as  Agenda 2030 and the Paris Agreement, while promoting far more rigorous measures which are desperately needed to counter the global threats we face.

 

 

Building on our work as World Future Council since 2007, we call upon policymakers to reverse the planet’s interconnected crises, to ensure resilience for the long-term and to act urgently to implement far reaching, appropriate measures

 

  1. Enhancing livelihoods through ending hunger, adopting agroecology and protecting the oceans

Across the world, millions of people are threatened by hunger despite a global food system of over-production and waste. Hunger can be eradicated through regenerative practices that challenge unsustainable food consumption and waste. Visionary food system policies are needed that promote agroecological practices, widely endorsed by scientists, civil society groups and farmers, protecting smallholders, indigenous farmers and community supported agriculture. Localized food systems must be structured to create resilience in the face of our brittle globalized food system. The recent COVID-19 pandemic is a symptom of a food system in need of transformation to address key health, nutrition, hunger, poverty, climate change and animal welfare issues at their roots. We request that the huge sums made available for restarting the economy be used proactively to further the food system’s agroecological transformation and assure long term resilience in the framework of food sovereignty and right to food.

With fishing grounds already overfished, many species extinct and the high pollution of our seas, we also call for the conservation of oceans by protecting at least 30 percent of the oceans by 2030 as recommended by the High Ambition Coalition of Governments.

  1. Establishing a regenerative economy within business and investment cultures 

Considering the overshoot of the planetary biocapacity, business and investments are required to consistently orientate their corporate strategies towards the externalization of benefits for human societies and natural habitats. From now on, entrepreneurial and investor success must be benchmarked against the regeneration of the natural bases of life and the development of the daily infrastructural needs of people. For safeguarding the ecological and material basis for our common future, the regeneration of the broad range of our common livelihoods must become a primary goal of our economic activities. This must be consequently supported by an adequate economic policy framework.

  1. Valuing and accounting for natural and social wealth

We underscore that natural and social wealth need to be valued and integrated into the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and incorporated into the valuation of companies and their performance measurements. To capture the positive and negative externalities, the broad range of social economic and ecological indicators must be integrated into accounting methodologies. The valuation of economic activities, their products and services along their full impacts on society and nature is a precondition for the global economic, social and environmental system transformation.

  1. Reviewing trade and investment agreements

As the Amazon still burns during the pandemic, all trade and investment rules and agreements need to be reviewed on the basis of environmental, economic, social and health impacts and effectively adjusted to achieve a regenerative life supporting economy. Furthermore, we also call for securing a legally binding multilateral treaty on transnational corporations’ respect for human rights at the UN.

  1. Developing technology serving people and planet

Technology is rapidly developing. Policy makers need to raise the question: Does the technology specifically contribute to human development, avoiding negative health and social consequences? Is the precautionary approach to human health, natural resources and ecosystems applied as well as the polluter pays principle? Can the technology leave no one behind and respect planetary boundaries?

  1. Advancing peace and security

We call on governments to reduce reliance on militarism and the threat or use of force, eliminate nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, drastically reduce the USD 1.7 trillion global military budget, and re-direct funds to common security and human needs. Financial and political support is needed for the United Nations and its mechanisms for the peaceful resolution of conflicts and its agencies for advancing security. Such a shift from military to human/common security can secure the health of our people and the health of our planet, regenerating the very foundations of life – forests, soils, oceans, and the atmosphere.

  1. Educating for sustainable development

We recognize that all daily decisions can have severe global impacts. At all ages, we need to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and values to unfold human potential and foster responsible behaviour and lifestyles, that are compatible with the living Earth. We call for education for sustainable development to be widely implemented from the youngest age onwards.

  1. Safeguarding and promoting the rights of future generations

We strongly support the campaigns of children and young people who are demanding that today’s leaders take appropriate measures to protect the future of the living Earth. They rightly insist on being actively involved in key decisions that will affect their future and generations to come.

We call for effective institutions to safeguard the rights of current and future generations at all levels of government decision making across the world.

We also call for the recognition of our collective responsibility on intergenerational equity and to recognize that all decisions have long-term implications for the wellbeing of people and the planet.

Liebe Leser*innen,

vor ein paar Wochen stand dieser Newsletter kurz vor der Veröffentlichung. Doch dann erreichten uns immer dramatischere Bilder aus Norditalien, die Ski-Saison in den Alpen endet, der Name Heinsberg wurde bundesweit bekannt, es schlossen Kitas und Schulen und weitreichende Kontaktsperren traten in Kraft. Wir stellten uns die Frage: Ist es in dieser Situation angemessen jetzt einen Newsletter herauszubringen, der das Thema Corona an keiner Stelle beinhaltet?

Mitmach-Aktion »Geschichte für morgen. Unser Alltag in der Corona-Krise«

Globales Lernen in Hamburg - 5. Mai 2020 - 20:21

Die Körber-Stiftung und das neu gegründete coronarchiv rufen alle Kinder und Jugendliche im Rahmen eines Mitmach-Wettbewerbs auf, sich mit den Veränderungen in ihrem Alltag durch die Corona-Krise zu beschäftigen und diese zu dokumentieren. Die Ausbreitung des Corona-Virus stellt alle vor große politische, gesellschaftliche und persönliche Herausforderungen. Doch irgendwann wird die Pandemie vorbei sein. Aber wie wird dann von der Corona-Krise gesprochen, wie wird die Erinnerung bewahrt? Dokumente, Zeugnisse, Erfahrungsberichte von heute werden die historischen Quellen von morgen bilden. Jugendliche von heute werden die Zeitzeuginnen und Zeitzeugen von morgen sein.

Der Wettbewerb soll junge Menschen motivieren, sich verantwortungsbewusst zu verhalten und Veränderungen in der eigenen Umgebung und Familie wahrzunehmen. »Bei dieser Mitmach-Aktion erleben Schülerinnen und Schüler, dass sie in der aktuellen Krisensituation selbst Quellen produzieren können, aus denen zukünftige Generationen mehr über den Alltag mit der Corona-Pandemie erfahren«, so Gabriele Woidelko von der Körber-Stiftung.

Hier alle Details.
