Business & Human Rights

Business & Human Rights

There is increasing pressure on businesses to take steps to ascertain, manage and account for their impact on human rights and explain how they are doing this. This pressure is taking on a more obvious legal dimension, as notions of moral and ethical responsibility begin to transform into harder edged legal duties. We provide training that can help organizations of all levels of expertise and resources put the Guiding Principles into practice.
