UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights: Simultaneous Implementation and Learning

Author: Elizabeth Wild & Nili Safavi, BP, Published on: 17 March 2014

This paper will chart BP’s actions to align with the UNGPs over time, from the independent review of our policies and practices in 2011, to the formation of an implementation plan in 2012, and more recently the development of a progress review mechanism. Lessons learned from the practical application of the UNGPs within BP have supported the evolution of our implementation plan. Our human rights governance seeks to promote clear ownership of practical actions by relevant functions, segments and businesses whilst also providing senior management overview of progress...By sharing the successes and challenges encountered along the way, we hope to contribute to the industry’s fund of knowledge on this complex topic. BP is contributing to and benefiting from IPIECA’s human rights programme, a collaborative industry approach to developing good practice tools and guidance, which enables peer sharing and learning.
