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

But East Coast Growers has dropped out of the exchange in order to pay the difference... That suggests that it makes even more sense now for Publix to join the agreement. It's the right thing to do, and it's good public relations for a company that cares a lot about its image. [also refers to Yum Brands, McDonald's, Burger King, Whole Foods]
