Investor Toolkit on Human Rights provides guidance for investors on how to address risks to people & respect human rights in investments

The Investor Alliance for Human Rights has published an Investor Toolkit on Human Rights (with Executive Summary) for asset owners and managers to address risks to people posed by their investments. The toolkit explains that investors have a responsibility to respect human rights as outlined in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and provides practical guidance for investors regarding how to apply the UNGPs in their work.

The guidance also highlights that financial actors have a tremendous opportunity to support recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic and positively contribute to new systems that embed respect for human rights.
