HRIAs as a practical tool for companies of all sizes and sectors to understand their impact and take appropriate measures.
In the context of their human rights due diligence, companies are expected to conduct HRIAs along their value chain, especially where they expect the most salient human rights risks. There are however not yet many good practical examples for companies to learn and understand what needs to be done and how. In this sharing & learning event, we explain the context, discuss the opportunities and challenges encountered and provide information on existing practical tools for assessing impacts as well as defining and taking appropriate measures.
Focusright will moderate the session and present their approach to HRIA. We are very pleased to have as well DER Touristik Suisse (Kuoni) sharing first-hand experience from a HRIAs project conducted in collaboration with the Roundtable Human Rights in Tourism in Thailand, and dormakaba outlining the company-led HRIA planned for Singapore and Malaysia.
