Nigeria: Human rights impact assessment explores potential impacts on local dairy farmers' livelihoods & rights, proposes mitigation steps

The purpose of this human rights assessment report is...to understand more about the dynamics and systemic challenges of local dairy production in Nigeria and to identify whether Arla’s activities cause,  contribute or are linked to a deterioration of working opportunities, working conditions and adequate living standards for Nigerian farmers and dependants who rely on raw milk production, processing, distribution, marketing and sales of dairy products...The results of the assessment will be integrated in our internal business processes and  shared across functions and management boards within Arla to inform future decision-making. In  line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and our ambition to  provide stakeholders with transparent and open communication, the...human rights assessment reports are  publically available on Arla’s website...It is our hope that by sharing our methods and reflections openly, we  cannot only ensure greater human rights due diligence within our own business activities, but promote business respect for human rights of other companies facing similar challenges...
