Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

Nestlé publishes its human rights training for employees

Author: The Danish Institute for Business & Human Rights, Published on: 3 May 2019

"Nestlé first company to publicly share its human rights training for employees", 30 April 2019

In order to inspire and guide other companies on how to train its employees on human rights, Nestlé has now decided to share its training module publicly.

The decision is a result of the company’s long-term collaboration with the Danish Institute for Human Rights...

“The need to address the human rights issue simply trumps other considerations – commercial or competitive. This module is open to all companies and individuals interested in gaining a better understanding of the human rights issue. They can choose to use this training in its current form, or to adapt it to meet their own needs,” said Yann Wyss [Senior Public Affairs Manager, Social and Environmental Impact].

Built around three chapters – understanding human rights, human rights challenges, and practical solutions – the training module manages the feat of conveying complex information in simple language, devoid of legal and technical jargon...

“We encourage companies to be transparent about their human rights challenges and how they address them. It is commendable that Nestlé is breaking new grounds in sharing their human rights training publicly...,” Dirk Hoffmann, Senior Advisor, Department for Human Rights & Business at the Institute, said.
