Guide to Human Rights Impact Assessment and Management

IBLF and the International Finance Corporation, in close collaboration with the UN Global Compact, have produced a comprehensive toolkit that business managers can use to identify, assess and implement responses to human rights challenges in new or evolving business projects.

This tool is designed to help companies understand in a proactive rather then reactive way where potential human rights challenges may lie in their evolving or future business projects, so that they can manage these risks and mitigate or eliminate them before they become a problem.

The Guide released is a work in progress and is to be tested over the next two years to ensure that it is as practical and user-friendly as possible.

The Guide introduces an eight step process through which business managers and their colleagues can oversee the identification, assessment and implementation of measures that will strengthen their company's contribution to human rights protection.
