About Us

Swedwatch is an independent, non-profit organization reporting on Swedish business relations in developing countries. We cover different sectors and focus on social and environmental concerns.

The framework of our studies is made up of international human rights law, environmental law and standards, international conventions and other voluntary standards as well as national legislation and Codes of conducts.

Swedwatch is a watchdog, a whistle blower and a lantern. We investigate human rights breaches and blow the whistle when necessary and push companies to act according to international standards and be pro-active. We also seek to spread best practice cases and give seminars in order to constantly raise the bar in the area of CSR.

The overall goal is reduced poverty and sustainable social and environmental development in the South. A sub-goal is to minimise the negative footprint of businesses and instead see improved contributions leading to positive impact through our research connected to CSR, human rights and the environment.
