A principle-based approach to the SDGs – why it matters for business
As an increasing number of companies engage with the SDGs and their human rights due diligence at the same time, this expert discussion addresses the why and the how of a principle-based approach specifically to human rights and the SDGs from a business perspective. In particular, it will look at:
- Why is business so important for fundamental human rights and achieving the SDGs?
- What can companies gain if they integrate human rights due diligence into their approach to the SDGs?
- How can and should companies deal with conflicting goals and tradeoffs?
- How can strong partnerships help in this field of sustainability management?
