Helping our members collaborate to advance human rights

Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world.

We give our member companies the tools they need to respect the rights of people in their global supply chains. That means getting to the root causes of why human rights issues happen in the first place. And treating their workers and farmers fairly and with respect so that their families and communities can thrive.

As businesses become increasingly aware of their social and environmental impact, responsible sourcing is becoming even more important.

Advancing the rights of all people within business operations is fundamental not just for moral and ethical reasons but also for commercial success.
