Human rights and companies ThinkHouse Spring Seminar 2021


Business compliance with human rights principles is increasingly moving from something that was a nice CSR issue to mention in publicity documents to a crucial element on boards' governance and risk agendas. Kieran Laird will explain why private companies should be worried about the human rights effects of their businesses and supply chains - including moves in the EU and elsewhere to make human rights due diligence a legal obligation on certain companies. He will explain what frameworks are relevant and how companies can begin to think about the relevant issues.

During the session, the speakers will provide useful information and practical tips, and will answer as many questions as possible in the time available.

This webinar is part of the ThinkHouse Spring Seminar 2021, developed specifically for senior in-house counsel. To register for this webinar or any others in the virtual seminar please use the registration button above.
