Guide to Human Rights Impact Assessment and Management


Guide to Human Rights Impact Assessment and Management
Online Only | © June 2010 IFC, Global Compact, International Business Leaders Forum | Complimentary

 

Guide to Human Rights Impact Assessment and ManagementThe revised online version of the Guide to Human Rights Impact Assessment and Management (HRIAM) was launched on June 25, 2010 during the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit in New York. The launch drew 150 participants, and 36 companies and 8 financial institutions were represented. Built on a three-year road-testing process, the guide provides practical advice to companies on how to identify and assess the human rights risks and impacts of their business activities, integrate the results into their management system, and ultimately improve their performance.

 

Specific scenarios, tools, and interactive exercises provide further concrete guidance to businesses throughout the HRIAM process.

 

IFC will organize several workshops in different regions to disseminate the Guide to HRIAM and help build business' capacity on this issue. In addition, IFC will continue to support its clients in addressing human rights risks and impacts as part of the ongoing Policies and Performance Standards Review and Update Process.
