Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility launches "Investor Alliance for Human Rights," a collective action platform to facilitate investor advocacy
Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility is excited to announce the launch of a new initiative, the Investor Alliance for Human Rights (IAHR), established to provide a collective action platform to facilitate investor advocacy on a full spectrum of human rights and labor rights issues. This new Alliance, the first of its kind, builds on longstanding ICCR member advocacy to amplify the global investor voice on critical human rights challenges and to promote corporate accountability on human rights... The Alliance is being established to create an umbrella beneath which a "coalition of the willing" from the investment community can advocate more immediately, consistently and strategically to protect human rights and to act as a deterrent against regressive legislative and regulatory action... Participation in the Alliance will be open to all interested institutional investors both inside and outside the ICCR membership.
