Corporate Human Rights Benchmark releases 2018 ranking results on human rights performance of 101 companies
Today (12 November), the Corporate Human Rights Benchmark released the results of its 2018 ranking. The benchmark assesses the human rights policies, processes, and practices of 101 of the world's largest publicly traded companies in three at-risk sectors (apparel, agricultural products, and extractives).
The 2018 results show that the majority of companies are still not demonstrating sufficient respect for human rights, the overall average score being just 27%. Nevertheless, the benchmark also finds that there is a welcome group of leading companies. The report detailing the benchmark's key findings is available below.
