Summary: COVID-19 has already impacted and will continue affecting business and value chains in many different ways. The adverse impacts of the coronavirus on people, within the company and in society as a whole, mean that human rights are at stake, and corporate human rights practitioners need to be involved in decision-making.
In this webinar with the Global Business Initiative on Human Rights (GBI) we will explore positive steps taken by companies, as well as how to prevent and mitigate negative impacts in similar emergencies that may arise in the future.
The webinar builds on GBI’s COVID-19 blog series.
