HUMAN RIGHTS DUE DILIGENCE

 

We help you to develop and implement a human rights strategy

New laws and international standards on human rights significantly increase the pressure on companies to comply with their human rights due diligence. Key drivers include the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the German government’s National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights (NAP), and the new German Supply Chain Act. Respect for human rights is not only a component of corporate responsibility, but also creates added value for companies and stakeholders.

We enable you to define an adequate human rights strategy and integrate it into your business processes:

Z

Goal-oriented approach

We develop with you a clear position on the topic of human rights, which provides you a roadmap for the implementation of your human rights due diligence
Z

Transparency through risk analysis

We create transparency on human rights risks along your entire value chain. We also prioritize the most important human rights issues for you
Z

Clarity about improvement opportunities

We systematically assess how well your company guidelines and processes are set up in regards to human rights diligence. In the process, you will receive concrete recommendations for necessary adjustments
Z

Impactful measures
