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

Policy creates the market conditions that make climate action not only possible, but profitable...[refers to Bank of America, BlackRock, Citi, ExxonMobil, Fidelity, GMO, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Norges Bank, Occidental Petroleum, PPL, State Street, & Vanguard]
