This paper argues that although labour, human rights and environmental law provide the minimum standards for international action, the law of sustainable development provides an aspirational goal, but not a measurable standard. As such, pressure groups that want to promote environmental and social protection have pushed for ethical self-regulation by industry. This has led to a new global trend in self-regulation and hybrid forms of regulation. This paper examines the impact of this trend on international law.
