Safeguarding Human Rights in the Business Network: Bold Approaches and Smart Solutions

November 1, 2016, 11:00 am-12:00 pm

Some of the greatest human rights challenges for companies lie in the adverse impacts of their business partners, including suppliers, contractors, joint-venture partners, customers, and governments. Often, companies have only a tenuous connection to the negative human impacts, and little to no control over them. Nonetheless, these companies suffer the reputational and operational damage from the association. We challenge companies to be bold and proactive in business relationships, both to limit risk and to extend your sustainability reach in the wider world. Join us to hear from four companies that are proactively managing their high-risk human rights issues in the web of their business relationships.
