Polish Institute for Human Rights and Business and Shift invite business enterprises for the workshop “UN Guiding Principles Reporting Framework: Putting the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights into practice.” The aim of the workshop is to enable companies to improve their human rights reporting and risk management processes by:
- improving participants understanding of the implications for business of the Human Rights and Business agenda,
- familiarizing business enterprises operating in Poland with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), which constitute the authoritative global standard in this field, endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council in June 2011, and
- familiarizing business enterprises with a practical tool – the UN Guiding Principles Reporting Framework (UNGP RF) – the first comprehensive guidance for companies to report on human rights issues in line with their responsibility to respect human rights as set out in the in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights,
The workshop will put the corporate responsibility to respect human rights into everyday language so that at the end of the day participants are confident that they know what questions they need to ask and provide answers to in order to “know and show” that their company respects human rights. It will equip and empower them to use the Reporting Framework to deepen internal conversations, identify gaps in performance and drive improvements in practice, as well as to build constructive and meaningful conversations with their investors, civil society stakeholders and those groups directly affected by their operations.
The workshop will be highly participatory (max. 25 participants), actively engaging participants and working with case studies and real and hypothetical examples of companies’ human rights reporting. Training provided by Polish Institute for Human Rights and Business and Shift experts will be enriched with contributions by dr Adam Bodnar, Polish Human Rights Defender (Obmbudsman), Kamil Wyszkowski, Representative & Director General Global Compact Poland and Dan Bross, Microsoft’s Senior Director of Corporate Citizenship and Executive Director of the Microsoft Technology and Human Rights Center.
The workshop will be useful primarily for directors and managers in charge of sustainability and CSR agenda, compliance, disclosure and risk assessment at the Polish companies and companies operating in the Polish market.
The workshop is organized under the Honorary Patronage of the Minister of Economy, Global Compact Network Poland, Konfederacja Lewiatan and CSR Europe. Thanks to generous support from workshop Strategic Partner Microsoft, Honorary Patron Konfederacja Lewiatan as well as Partners Mazars, Orbis Hotel Group and Balajcza Specialized Translations the workshop is free of charge for participants.
