The Trinity Centre for Social Innovation of Trinity Business School in collaboration with the Global Business Initiative on Human Rights and the Human Rights Unit of the Department of Foreign Affairs are delighted to invite you to the launch of new guidance on business and human rights for business enterprises followed by a practical business webinar. This event is targeted at business practitioners from Irish companies from diverse functions – including legal and compliance, sustainability, procurement, human resources and external affairs.
Join this webinar to:
• Better understand what the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and stakeholders expect of businesses in practice.
• Discuss practical approaches that businesses in Ireland and around the world are taking to meet their human rights responsibilities, including by conducting human rights due diligence.
• Explore how human rights-related legal and policy developments will affect your business.
The guidance will be formally launched by the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Defence, Simon Coveney, as part of this event.
The event will be chaired and moderated by Maximilian Schormair, Assistant Professor in Business Ethics at Trinity Business School. Catie Shavin, Director of GBI, Ron Popper, CEO of GBI, and Benn Hogan, Manager at GBI & Trinity CSI Visiting Researcher, will share their expertise and practical insights on business and human rights implementation.
