Bienvenue au Centre de Ressources sur les Entreprises et les Droits de l’Homme.

Nous nous faisons un devoir de travailler avec les militants de la société civile, les entreprises et les gouvernements afin d’aborder les inégalités de pouvoir, d’identifier les voies recours en cas d’abus, et d’assurer la protection des individus et de la planète.

Les entreprises et les communautés affectées nous remercient toutes deux des ressources et du soutien que nous leur apportons.

Ceci est uniquement possible grâce à votre soutien. S’il vous plaît, songez à faire un don dès aujourd’hui.

Merci,
Phil Bloomer, Directeur Exécutif
