POLICY GAP ANALYSIS
When talking about companies' respect for human rights, one of the first things to look for is where this commitment is stated. A company should have a human rights policy. I can already hear you saying: one more policy! And indeed, the point is not to have one more document and in my opinion, there is no need to reinvent the wheel. Depending on the type and size of the company, there may already be policies that could inform a human rights policy. The human rights policy though should be a trademark of the company.
Where do you stand in terms of the footprints you want to leave on this planet? Your audience, be it investors, consumers, employees, suppliers or the communities where you operate, should understand by reading this simple document what your company commits to.
I am happy to take a look at the policies you already have in place as a company and hear what brought you to this point and what you want to achieve. Should you want to continue in the human rights due diligence path, you are welcome to have a look at other services I offer, such as Human Rights Impact Assessments, Stakeholders Engagement and Research.
