Building on a long experience in CSR & Human Rights
Human Rights Due Dilligence consultant
IHuman Rights@Work -the first consultancy in the Netherlands specialised in Business & Human Rights- in 2011, was founded by Liesbeth Unger.
I decided to use my extensive experience in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility and human rights as a consultant to provide services to companies and their stakeholders. I can help them understand the positive impact of respecting human rights and implement the UN Guiding Principles for business and human rights (UNGP). My background as a human rights lawyer and practical field experience contributes to the value I can add for my clients.
I’ve had assignments in UN organizations, multinationals, smaller companies, NGOs and governments. I am able to speak the language of different parties to facilitate dialogue between them. As a consultant I understand the concerns of NGOs and can interpret these for the business world. I advise NGOs, UN organisations and governments on how they can best engage with business. I develop tools, and methodologies, and carry out impact and risk assessments.
Human Rights Consultancy on a personal level
Human rights are universal, but their implementation needs to be tailor-made, listening to stakeholders’ wishes.
As Human rights consultant, I am a partner for the Netherlands of Löning Human Rights and Responsible Business. Together we offer tailored tools and human rights risk management services for leading European companies. I also work with a network of specialists, both in the Netherlands and abroad, who are able to contribute to larger projects.
We give advice by combining extensive experience in corporate responsibility, in-depth knowledge of human rights, offering tailored solutions and engaging and connecting the involved parties, always through a pragmatic approach.
