[PDF] Business and human rights in So. Africa: Context and Recommendations for Proactive Engagement by the National Business Initiative

Companies are likely to face increasing expectations, pressures, and incentives for enhanced due diligence on human rights...In general, South African companies are not in a good position to respond to such increased expectations. Case studies...show that human rights related policies and performance are uneven and that there are a number of important gaps or weaknesses...The above factors give rise to a strong argument for the National Business Initiative to support its members, and South African business in general, in enhancing due diligence on human rights.
