Human rights due diligence

We support clients to carry out human rights due diligence on their own operations and across their value chains and business relationships, turning theory and principles into practice.

Our approach is to enable and facilitate teams within companies to implement and own the due diligence processes to ensure they are effectively embedded.

  • Human rights risk and impact assessments – at corporate, country, supply chain, product or site/community level
  • Support to companies as they engage with external benchmarks, including KnowTheChain and the Corporate Human Rights Benchmark
  • Facilitating internal and external stakeholder engagement to design and implement continuous improvement
  • Developing bespoke tools and guidance

We have particular expertise in:
