Event resources are for BSR members only. Members, please log in to access the resources.
Building on the guidance in BSR’s report, Human Rights Roadmap for Transforming Finance, the webinar will provide financial institutions an opportunity to deepen their understanding of their responsibilities regarding access to remedy under the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and other key frameworks.
Through an interactive panel discussion, we will explore practical strategies and tools for financial institutions to strengthen the remedy ecosystem and address adverse impacts associated with their operations and value chains. It will feature efforts that financial institutions have taken thus far to advance access to remedy and provide a forum to discuss how BSR’s financial services members can scale progress toward a stronger ecosystem.
