About the event
As political and public expectations have risen, the demand for transparency on companies has increased considerably. This webinar addresses the requirements for a statement of commitment on human rights as well as appropriate communication in the context of human rights due diligence.
The following questions will be discussed:
- What are the international requirements regarding a statement of commitment on human rights and the communication about HRDD?
- How can a UNGC membership contribute to a company's implementation of HRDD (CEO statement and Communication on Progress)?
- What are the reporting requirements in the EU and in potentially upcoming legal requirements in Switzerland?
Participation in this webinar is open to everyone and free of charge. The webinar will be moderated by Sibylle Baumgartner and Matthias Leisinger from focusright.
This webinar is part of the second round of GCNSL's HRDD training programme taking place between October 2020 and January 2021. The HRDD training programme assists members of the GCNSL in answering the questions that arise when establishing and implementing their HRDD policies and processes. The focus of the series will be tailored to the needs of the participating companies, while preparing companies for existing and potentially upcoming regulations.
