Berne Declaration

The Berne Declaration (BD) is a not-for-profit, independent organization which has been campaigning for more equitable relations between Switzerland and underprivileged countries for more than forty years. Among our most important concerns are the global safeguarding of human rights, the socially and ecologically responsible conduct of business and the promotion of fair economic relations.

In Switzerland, the BD strives to build a fairer world by means of public campaigning and lobbying. The BD informs the public at large about the consequences of our consumer behavior and lobbies political duty bearers as well as decision makers of Swiss corporations that have global business operations. The BD urges them to respect human rights, to conduct their affairs in a social and responsible manner and to establish fair conditions of trade.
