Human rights and your organisation

In today’s increasingly globalised and transparent world, businesses are under pressure to show that their work is not harming people’s fundamental dignity and rights.

Governments, investors, consumers and market regulators expect companies to be reporting on their human rights performance. They want to know where a company is doing well and where there’s room for improvement. 

It’s about being a good corporate citizen: acting responsibly and respecting your people, suppliers, stakeholders and everyone affected by your business - right across the supply chain.
