Human Rights are at the heart of what AIM-Progress does.
We help our members and suppliers build capability to ensure implementation of the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights (UNGP), identify and work on solutions to common salient human rights our membership is experiencing in their day-to-day responsible sourcing work.
