A growing number of organizations and initiatives are working to tackle forced labor and human trafficking, which affects 40 million or more people around the globe.

A Map to Help Business Collaborate with Anti-Slavery Organizations

The 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that "no one should be held in slavery or servitude” and “slavery in all its forms should be eliminated." Yet unfortunately modern slavery—most clearly embodied in forced labor and sex trafficking—remains both widespread and difficult to combat today.

The Impacts of Climate on Health: Why Business Should Care and How to Act

Every year since 2011, the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report has identified climate-related risks as a top threat to business.

What the Right to Own Property Means for a Land-Based Sustainable Business

This is the second in a series of blog posts where we and a BSR member company review how business respects individual articles in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), 70 years after its adoption in 1948. This series has the support of the Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR), but any views expressed here should not be attributed to OHCHR. This particular post, co-authored with Enel, explores what the right to own property and land rights mean for business.

Indkøb som fremmer social inklusion – og bundlinien

Er det troværdigt, at man kan reducere omkostningerne og øge kvaliteten, hvis man ansætter medarbejdere marginaliseret på arbejdsmarkedet?
