We were delighted to partner with Accenture to examine how 10 pioneering companies are implementing human rights due diligence and adding value to their business. This important project was commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) to demonstrate that human rights due diligence can work for companies of all shapes and sizes. The official launch was held on the 27th of October 2021.
Mrs. Wahidi, Head of Division at BMZ said “For global supply to become more sustainable, implementation of human rights due diligence is key. This study shows that implementation is feasible and how to do it.”
Luke Wilde, Founder and Managing Partner at twentyfifty added, “With our deep expertise in due diligence, we enjoyed working with these progressive companies to identify best practices, key learnings and some really practical top tips that we hope will inspire other businesses to act too.”
