|Using Life Cycle Thinking to Improve Human Rights Performance|
|A series of human rights focused legislation is driving businesses to assess their own performance as well as that of their supply chains. For many companies, this will inevitably mean taking a deeper look into what products and services they procure, where they come from, and what social issues are pertinent. The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, and the UK Modern Slavery Act exemplify the need for businesses to develop solutions. Methods to measure product-level social and human rights impacts are not yet well understood nor systematically considered as part of product stewardship management. By contrast, approaches to analyze environmental related impacts of a product are well-established. This session will explore the use of life cycle thinking techniques to measure, prioritize, and help manage human rights risks and opportunities.
