HRDD Forum: Damage control or opportunity for change?: Working with companies after the identification of human rights impacts

Date: 1 April 2020

Time: 11.00-13.00

Venue: N/A


Event details

As expectations on business to undertake human rights due diligence are mounting, companies, advisers and other stakeholders are grappling with what this means in practice. When a company identifies human rights risks through its due diligence, such risks can no longer be swept under the carpet, but need to be comprehensively addressed.

In the second roundtable of our Human Rights Due Diligence Forum, speakers from civil society, consultants and a human rights institute will present case studies of how they advised and assisted companies on their HRDD processes, particularly after certain risks were discovered. The presentations will discuss public examples of corporate engagement by Nestlé, Vinci and Asos with external experts and stakeholders.

As legal practitioners, Forum members will increasingly be faced with these questions.


This roundtable will now take place online only. Members will receive joining details via email. If you are a member and have not received these joining details, or have any other questions about the event please email the events team.
