“Corporate human rights snapshot promised” – Innovation Forum – April 14, 2016

On April 14, 2016 the Innovation Forum editorial team profiled the recently-launched Corporate Human Rights Benchmark.

“It will be used to rank 100 top international companies on their human rights performance in order to provide markets with better information on the way companies deal with human rights issues.  The first ranking will be published in November 2016. It will look at companies chosen on the basis of market capitalisation from three sectors: agriculture, apparel and the extractive industries.”

The companies ranked include well-known multinationals including Adidas, Coca-Cola, Kraft Heinz, Rio Tinto, Starbucks and Statoil as well as lesser-known companies such as the Chinese state-owned winemaker Kweichow Moutai and the Russian fuel company Surgutneftegas.”

The Corporate Human Rights Benchmark is described on an undated page of the Business & Human Rights Resource Center internet site.
