The purpose of this Human Rights and Business Learning tool is to help business actors understand the nature of human rights and the steps they are expected to take to respect human rights throughout their operations. The tool aims to provide managers and staff of companies with essential knowledge and understanding of what human rights are, why human rights are relevant for business, and the key elements of what it means to respect and support human rights in practice. The tool explains concepts such as: making a policy commitment to human rights, the human rights due diligence cycle, and operational-level grievance mechanisms. It provides a foundation upon which companies can build the knowledge of their workforce about human rights and help strengthen the integration of human rights into their corporate culture and into their business relationships.
