Cumulative Impacts on Human Rights

Frequently, human rights impacts experienced by peoples and communities are cumulative impacts, that is, the result of the combined actions of several companies or other actors. However, these impacts may not be picked up by corporate risk assessments, or may not be viewed through a human rights lens; further, government action may be lacking. How should a responsible company identify and address its incremental contribution to a cumulative human rights impact? How can it engage with other contributors, whether other companies, government or others to mitigate remaining impact? This webinar will address challenges and best practices in respect of cumulative human rights impacts.
