This guide is for managers in companies operating in England, Scotland and Wales
who have an overarching responsibility for developing and implementing human rights
practices in their company. It will also assist managers who have responsibility for
social issues, human resources, or customer and community relations or those who
advise the board. This guide sets out seven steps managers should follow to help
companies identify, mitigate and report on the human rights impacts of their activities.
It also provides advice on how companies can meet the UN Guiding Principles on
Business and Human Rights, the global standard, which outlines the role of business
and governments in respecting human rights.
