Your partner for Human Rights & Business

A world where all humans enjoy their basic human rights. Isn’t that what we all want?

Human rights in the business context are key for the business of tomorrow and for the transition to a sustainable economy. 

What are human rights and how can your company have a negative or positive impact on them? Do you have to know all your risks, also in the supply chain? How can you show that you respect human rights, also under the current and upcoming EU legislation? What do you do when you are accused of negative impact in the media? Or maybe your company is ready for a next step in human rights due diligence?

We can help you answer all these questions and more and accompany you on your journey to know and show that your company respects human rights. As Human Rights@Work was one of the first specialized human rights & business consultancies, we build our work on a long experience. We help you to meet your legal requirements on human rights due diligence as determined by the CSRD, and potentially the CSDDD and beyond..
