Meeting expectations on human rights
Join us for this networking event on December 6th!
On October 26th, the Danish Institute for Human Rights published the results of the 2022 CHRB Snapshot Denmark: Danish companies are behind in communicating their human rights efforts | The Danish Institute for Human Rights.
The snapshot delivers insight into how a selection of large Danish companies are currently communicating about their efforts to meet the requirements of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the degree to which that communication demonstrates alignment with the UN Guiding Principles. This is the second Denmark snapshot, the first was published 2020.
At the event, we want to give Danish companies, those involved in the analysis and those who were not, the opportunity to discuss the methodology, the results and how these learnings can support efforts to respect human rights. Participants will have the chance to dive into themes that are of particular interest to them, not only on communication of human rights efforts but also on the due diligence process itself.
Along with presentation of findings the report includes recommendations for companies as well as the Danish government, investors and civil society. The Institute recommends companies to improve their human rights due diligence practices and their publicly available information thereon, in particular where the snapshot has illustrated areas for improvement. This includes around disclosure of due diligence practices, engagement with affected stakeholders and ensuring access to remedy, when harm occurs.
