Respecting human rights makes good business sense. 

New Zealand businesses are increasingly aware that respecting human rights is not only the right thing to do - it's also good for business. 

Many businesses ensure they look after their workers, customers and the communities they operate in by complying with regulations. This is a great start, and it needs to go further. Businesses also need to consider the rights of people in every country that their business has an impact on. 

In this section you’ll get an introduction to human rights in a business context, and practical steps you can start today to protect your people and your business.
