Violations or abuse of human rights by companies are often found to have been in conflicts, and therefore a new discourse on business and human rights has begun and got the momentum across the world. Globally, the UN Guiding Principles (UNGPs) and Global Compact (UNGC) principleshave in a way made attempts to institutionalize human rights for businesses and seek companies to ‘respect human rights’ and take remedial measures if rights are abused or violated. It is, therefore, becoming imperative for companies to ensure and communicate to their stakeholders that companies are not indulged or complicit in abusing human rights at workplace, marketplace, and in communities. In order to obtain the social license and to remain sustainable in business, companies are required to evaluate all their decisions and actions vis-a-vis human rights obligations. Therefore, human rights have become the latest business obligations for doing the responsible and sustainable business.
Human rights for responsible business is now an emerging requirement. Companies don’t have knowledge and expertise to respond to minimum requirements that reduce their human rights risks or threats. There are not many experts who possess clear understanding and criticality of it and therefore have the expertise to provide guidance and solutions to companies on human rights.
