Human Rights

The world is demanding higher human rights standards from all organisations. Embedding human rights principles into organisational governance is increasingly an expected part of doing business.

We help our clients identify and understand the often complex social and human rights issues that affect their business. We focus on the integration of social goals into sustainability imperatives to identify risks and opportunities. We’ll help you measure your baseline, set targets, and build and implement strategies to achieve them.

Performance Measurement

Modern Slavery Risk Assessment Tool

For our counter-slavery support services we deploy an array of tools enabling clients to benchmark their position, quantify supply chain risk, and analyse how best to proceed. These tools make demonstrating year-on-year progress easy by quantifying the client’s counter slavery process.

The video below is a brief introduction to our Modern Slavery Risk Assessment Tool, which we use to quantify supply chain risk and create an actionable picture of a Client’s supply chain. This assessment is used to target supply chain engagement and measure year-on-year progress for each annual slavery statement.

ESG

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria are a set of standards for a company’s operations that measure non-financial indicators. They are increasingly used as a measurement for investors to evaluate businesses in which they might want to invest. The ‘Social’ score is often undervalued, however organisations which do not address this key element will underperform. We help clients boost their social performance indicators to make them more attractive to workers, investors, and buyers.

Our team can assist with the following ESG services:

  • ESG101 trainings (executive or generic)
  • Selection support for the right ESG standard
  • Materiality assessments
  • Current-state & gap assessments to build an ESG roadmap
  • Implementing improvements to boost ESG scores
  • B Corporation Certification

Human Rights Strategy

It is increasingly important for companies to identify and address human rights issues across their business. We build corporate and sustainability strategies with robust human rights pillars linked to measurable standards, such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, B Corp certification, or leading Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) metrics.

Developing an actionable human rights strategy allows an organisation to reach certification goals, enables them to better respond to legislation and market demand, mitigate risks, and attract and retain talent. Our services are flexible and fully aligned to the strategic objectives of each client. 

Modern Slavery

Mitigating modern slavery risk in operations and supply chains is a requirement under Australia’s Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) for organisations turning over more than $100m. We guide our clients’ counter-slavery responses, both mandatory and voluntary, in a number of ways, depending on their needs. This includes measuring slavery risk in everything purchased, developing an in-house supplier management tool, training procurement and operational staff on identification and response, and implementing remediation and engagement strategies. Our counter-slavery work is framed around complying with the Australian Modern Slavery Act and achieving continuous improvement year-on-year, to ensure our clients are standing out amongst peers, while mitigating material risks to business and people.
