Businesses are required to take ownership of, and commit to, respecting human rights in their organisations and throughout their entire value chain. They need to act on identifying, preventing, mitigating, and remediating negative human rights impacts that may result from their operations or their business relationships, by putting the necessary systems and controls in place. 

The main controls, as envisaged in United Nations’ Guiding Principles on Human Rights (UNGPs), include human rights due diligence (HRDD) and human rights impact assessments (HRIA).​ In this ​podcast, we unpack each of the stages of the Human Rights due diligence process.
