What is human rights due diligence?
It is such a measure of prudence, activity or assiduity as is properly expected from a reasonable person. In the context of the UNGPs, human rights due diligence comprises on-going management processes that a reasonable and prudent enterprise needs to undertake.
The organisation’s due diligence processes, whether on modern slavery and human trafficking, or environment, should aim to identify and address potential risks and strive for continual improvement.
Ardea International understands that businesses and organisations have to ensure that they establish robust due diligence procedures to underpin their modern slavery statements or any reporting disclosure. There are good legal reasons for companies to ensure they have proper due diligence procedures in place.
