Human Rights Due Diligence (HRDD), the process of identifying, preventing, mitigating and accounting for adverse human rights impacts arising from a company's operations, is a core principle of the corporate responsibility to respect human rights introduced in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. We usually think of HRDD as a practice of for-profit entities, such as big corporations: they should exercise due diligence to identify human rights risks and avoid human rights impacts.
Non-profits, too, engage in "transnational business relations." They source products, employ people across the world, and deal with complex supply chains, be it at a different scale compared to large corporations. How do they go about the process of HRDD? What can and should the role of non-profits be in the implementation of the UNGPs?
Sophie Brill, Corporate Responsibility Manager at Oxfam GB, will join OxBHR for a discussion on HRDD in the non-profit sector.
A free sandwich lunch will be provided.
