United Nations, the Working Group on the issue of human rights and transnational corporations and other business enterprises
With unprecedented challenges in sustainability, impacts of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) risks on business continuity are becoming more apparent. In order to ensure future business success, companies need to identify and manage CSR risks, integrating them into the Business Contingency Plan (BCP).
This conference will explore CSR risks management, using the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (GPs), which is a globally recognized guidance incorporated into several CSR guidelines and initiatives, as a guidance tool. One of five members of the United Nations Working Group on the issue of Human Rights and Transnational Corporations and Other Business Enterprises will be invited to explain the essence of GPs. Concrete advice on its application to corporate risk management, including best practices in tackling implementation challenges, will be provided. In addition, current discussion and efforts related to business and human rights will also be introduced from the perspective of risk management.
The conference will offer a unique opportunity to develop a better understanding of CSR risks and to know the latest trend in the field.
