EHRC guide for company boards on human rights

In May¬†2016, the Equality and Human Rights Commission published ‘Business and Human Rights: a five-step guide for company boards‘.

The guide is for boards of UK companies. It sets out five steps boards should follow to satisfy themselves that their companies identify, mitigate and report on the human rights impacts of their activities. These steps will also aim to help boards to reflect their leadership and fiduciary duties.
