The second round of BSR’s Human Rights Working Group (HRWG) meetings for 2019 was held between July and September in St. Louis, Tokyo, and Stockholm. Established in 2012, HRWG is a collaborative initiative designed to help companies implement the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), bringing together approximately 40 companies from across sectors. In addition to providing operational-level guidance and best practices in the business and human rights field, HRWG has established a global network of business and human rights professionals. The summer meetings covered a mix of substantive and methodological topics, including:
- Human rights methodologies, continued from the Spring round of meetings
- Human rights and supply chains
- Responsible use of technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI)
- Legal trends
