15 case studies of businesses addressing human rights impacts while contributing to Sustainable Development Goals

Author: Shift, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Published on: 24 July 2018

"The Human Rights Opportunity 15 real-life cases of how business is contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals by putting people first", 

Shift’s “The Human Rights Opportunity” offers 15 practical examples of how companies and multi-stakeholder initiatives are aiming to address human rights impacts and, at the same time, are showing great promise in delivering significant contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through this report, we seek to provide inspiration for how companies can harness innovation, leadership, influence and partnerships to tackle negative impacts in ways that maximize positive outcomes for people, in line with the SDGs. Contexts vary, and none of these examples would claim to be perfect. But they are all a substantial step in the right direction...

[Cases focus on the following issues: 1. Living wage (H&M, Egedeniz Textile, ACT, Malawi Tea 2020), 2. Forced labour (HP, Responsibkle Labor Initiative, Penguin Apparel, Seafood Task Force, Issara Institute), 3. Gender equality (Inditex, Better Strawberries Group, Fair Food Program) 4. Land rights (De Beers, PepsiCo, Total)]
