Implementing Human Rights Due Diligence in Global Supply Chains
It is now broadly acknowledged that companies have a responsibility to respect human rights by conducting human rights due diligence. Yet in practice a number of challenges remain. What does it mean concretely, to implement human rights due diligence in daily business operations and throughout global value chains?
This event is an opportunity to discuss these issues with business practitioners as well as the Chair and Vice-Chair of the UN Working Group on Business and Human Rights on Human Rights Day. It is jointly organised by the GCBHR, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).
