We exist to help ethical organisations demonstrate their commitment to human rights compliance to their stakeholders. We are ensuring that any human rights issues in their operations are identified, addressed and remediated.
A framework that covers international human rights law
One of the biggest challenges organisations face in monitoring & operationalizing human rights in workplaces is that there is no standard definition of acceptable workplace conditions, using international human rights law. So we’ve made one.
Our 10 Principles pull together a framework that covers all points of international human rights law that relate to workplace conditions. Together, this framework defines 'decent work’.
These principles are how we determine the standards to be met, the indicators of those standards being met, and ultimately the questions we ask of everyone everywhere, to review the on-ground work-conditions everywhere.
