This release marks the beginning of a ‘workshopping’ period where companies, government, civil society and other stakeholders are encouraged to provide input and help shape the Framework’s further development.
Use the forms below to provide input on the Framework, or contact us for more information about participating in upcoming workshops. When you submit a form, you can either close in the top right of the screen, press “Esc” key, or wait several seconds to access additional feedback forms.
