All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
Business & Human Rights
The increasing number of cases involving enterprises worldwide confirm the tendency of the public opinion and judiciary to hold companies directly or indirectly responsible for human rights violations.
HRIC promotes corporate accountability and the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights through the organisation of conferences and lobbying at Government level.
In order to prevent, mitigate or manage the risk of human rights violations, companies should apply the so-called Human Rights Due Diligence (HRDD), as recommended by the 2011 UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
To this regard, HRIC professionals provide assistance to companies and other involved stakeholders in carrying out the HRDD process, through the development of its five main steps:
Company’s Human Rights Gap Analysis
Stakeholder Identification and Consultation
Impact Identification & Risk Assessment
Stakeholder Engagement Strategy
Follow-up and Monitoring Procedures
