Join us for this 2 Part webcast as we examine the area of human rights risk and the possible wide-ranging impacts on corporations.  While many companies think of human rights in terms of compliance or ethics, it is a risk that is much broader.  We will talk to experts from NGOs who have been active in this area for some time and with company representatives who are taking action to help mitigate human rights risk.  

In Part 2 of this Webcast we will hear from companies that have taken an active role to address human rights in their day to day business operations.  Human rights violations have become so well publicized that companies risk losing their license to operate in some countries.  Company representatives will share why this has become an important issue for them and how they are able to educate people in their organisations to consider human rights risk. 

Key questions addressed:

  • Why has the area of human rights risk become important for Nestlé and Total?
  • What are the consequences of violating human rights?
  • How has human rights risk moved beyond just a compliance exercise?
  • How are operations incorporating changes in processes to mitigate human rights risks?
