Human Rights For Business
Human rights are basic rights and freedoms that protect all people equally. They are based on dignity, fairness and respect.
Businesses have a responsibility to respect human rights in their operations. This includes workforce, supply chain, products and services.
"The responsibility to respect human rights is a global standard of expected conduct for all business enterprises wherever they operate...[It] exists over and above compliance with national laws and regulations protecting human rights." (UN Human Rights Council)
There is increasing global onvergence to the implementation of human rights in business. Embedding human rights into a companies business practice makes good business sense.
