Our vision

Swedwatch’s vision is a world in which global economic systems are just, transparent and sustainable.
Human rights and the environment are protected and respected and businesses contribute to sustainable
development and inclusive growth within the means of the planet.

Our mission

Swedwatch’s mission is to empower rights holders and to promote responsible business practices
and inclusive growth. We do this by highlighting how people and the planet are impacted by company activities
and by building bridges for change across stakeholder groups.
