The Voluntary Principles provide guidelines to oil, gas and mining companies on how to manage human rights risks around their security operations in high-risk areas.

Foreign Office Minister with responsibility for Conflict Issues, Mark Simmonds, has recorded a video message marking the launch, and has issued a statement to Parliament. Today, we have also published our 2013 annual report on our work to support the Voluntary Principles and strengthen the initiative.
