Author: Nestlé & Danish Institute for Human Rights, Published on: 7 January 2014

[We invited Nestlé to respond to an NGO statement criticising its human rights impact assessment undertaken with Danish Institute for Human Rights. Joint response by Nestlé and Danish Institute for Human Rights provided]. We read with interest the joint statement from Blue Planet Project, FIVAS, Food & Water Watch and Public Services International. We found that many of the observations in this statement are in stark contrast to the responses we have received from other stakeholders who have recognized Talking the Human Rights Walk as a step forward in the field of business and human rights...[W]e view [the report] as a tool that will help us to engage in more in-depth discussions with a broad range of individuals and organizations that are willing to contribute to the ongoing debate around HRIAs...We acknowledge that the methodology for the facilitated HRIAs is not yet perfect; it is work in progress, and Nestlé and DIHR are jointly improving their practice in this emerging field. We welcome all feedback on Talking the Human Rights Walk and encourage other stakeholders to send us their thoughts on this document...Regarding the specific issues raised in the joint statement, please see [the full response at the link above.]
