Author: Shift & Mazars

In April 2013, Shift and Mazars launched a discussion paper on developing global standards for the reporting & assurance of company alignment with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights...The discussion paper was initially open for public consultation between 1 May and 1 July 2013. The project team received responses from approx. 30 organizations and individuals...In light of growing interest in the project and the team’s desire to gain as much feedback as possible before launching any work on the substance of the proposed standards, the period for feedback on the discussion paper has been extended to 1 September 2013...All comments can be submitted via email to Anna Triponel from Shift at anna.triponel[at]shiftproject.org and Bahtiar Manurung from Mazars at bahtiar[at]mazars.co.id. [Includes list of publicly available responses]. [Refers to Asia Pulp & Paper (part of Sinar Mas), CICS (part of Ceram Group), Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, DNV Business Assurance, TIGERS Success Series, TRaC Global]
