[PDF] A guide to business and human rights: How human rights can add value to your business [UK]

Author: UK Equality & Human Rights Commission, Published on: 1 March 2013

This guide to ''business and human rights: how human rights can add value to your business'' sets out six key areas that are particularly relevant to smaller businesses. It also sets out a simple model to understand and put in place respect for human rights across the whole of a business’ operations and its supply chain. It draws on research carried out by Middlesex University which found a particular gap in the support available to smaller businesses to understand what is meant by business and human rights and what they can do to ensure respect for human rights. You can also find some short sound bites of businesses talking about how they have adapted to become more human rights focused.
