In March and April 2019, BSR’s Human Rights Working Group (HRWG) held its first round of meetings for the year in New York, London, and Tokyo. 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 spring meetings covered a mix of substantive and methodological topics:
- Human rights methodologies
- Children’s rights
- Legal trends
- Risks of doing business in disputed territories
