Business and Human Rights
'Respecting human rights is now a global standard of expected conduct for all business enterprises wherever they operate' (prof. John Ruggie, UN special representative).
Knowing your human rights risks is becoming a necessity in mainstream business processes. Mazars/ Berenschot International will assess the compliance of your business against human rights indicators and provide opinion based on this assessment. Our approach focuses on:
- Definition and implementation of a human rights strategy and road map at corporate and country levels
- Implementation of tools for controlling and measuring the risks of non compliance matters relating to human rights
- Definition of applicable standards and guidelines intended to engage your partners (ethical charter, supplier code of conduct, etc.)
- Definition and implementation of assurance plans to make sure that indicators / benchmarks are correctly implemented
Mazars won the 2012 IAB innovation award for its Human Rights Audit.
