Identify and manage human rights risks

Demand for Human Rights Impact Assessments (HRIAs) and holistic Human Rights and Environmental Due Diligence (HREDD) is rising as companies face increasing pressure from investors and regulatory requirements. To comply with these regulations, companies recognise the need for nuanced risk information, particularly in supply chains.

HRIAs go beyond compliance, enabling companies to allocate resources effectively based on identified risks. LRQA supports companies worldwide in conducting HRIAs to identify and manage human rights risks, typically focusing on specific commodities or countries.
