Why are Human Rights Important to Business?

It is important that businesses understand the need and value of respecting human rights. Ensuring that you manage your human rights compliance will help:

  • Manage legal risk– are you aware of the growing mandatory requirements regarding human
    rights compliance?
  • Protect Brand Value– customers and consumers are increasingly interested in the ethics of businesses. Is your company at risk of negative media attention that could affect your bottom line?
  • Morality– does your company recognise its responsibility to respect human rights?
  • Improve investor relations– are you accountable for your human rights impacts?
