Corporate due diligence timeline: Monitoring companies’ human rights practices related to Russian aggression against Ukraine

See all tags

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, we have been closely monitoring the situation and private sector responses. Since under the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), businesses operating in situations of armed conflict should conduct heightened human rights due diligence, we invited 400 companies to respond to a survey about human rights due diligence related to their operations and/or investments in Russia and/or Ukraine.

Forty-three companies provided full or partial responses to our survey questions. This corporate due diligence timeline monitors all 43 companies on the implementation of their human rights commitments with the aim of enhancing transparency around businesses’ human rights due diligence practices related to the Russian military aggression against Ukraine, including gaps and examples of good practice.

The timeline can be viewed in grid view and timeline mode. Navigate between the two by clicking on "Views".

The timeline will be updated on an ongoing basis.
