Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

CEOs of Microsoft, Apple, Google and more urge Trump administration to stay in Paris climate deal

Author: Nat Levy, GeekWire, Published on: 13 December 2019

...[D]riving progress on addressing climate change is what’s best for the economic health, jobs, and competitiveness of our companies and our country...  [W]e stand by our conviction that a commitment to the Paris Agreement requires a just transition of the workforce—one that respects labor rights and is achieved through dialogue with workers and their unions. Participation in the Paris Agreement enables us to plan for a just transition and create new decent, family-supporting jobs and economic opportunity... Staying in the Paris Agreement will strengthen our competitiveness in global markets, positioning the United States to lead the deployment of new technologies that support the transition, provide for our workers and communities, and create jobs and companies built to last... We urge the United States to join us in staying in.

[Signatories include AFL-CIO, Apple, Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, and 71 others]
