Business case

Institutional investors’ responsibility to respect human rights is defined in international human rights standards. It was formally and unanimously endorsed by the UN in 2011, and immediately reflected in OECD standards. The expectations of employees, beneficiaries, clients, governments and wider society have only increased – driven by growing visibility and urgency of many human rights issues, and by a better understanding of investors’ role in shaping real-world outcomes.
