New Report: Supply Chain Human Rights Risk Management

On 14 November the discussion paper “Supply Chain Human Rights Risk Management: Blockchain and Emerging Technology” was launched in London.

The paper is the result of a collaboration between RCS Global, Hermes Investment Management, DLA Piper, and Everledger.

Focussing on human rights risk management and supply chain transparency in minerals and metals supply chains, the paper outlines some of the potential opportunities and challenges presented by new technology, blockchain, and greater data provision in improving responsible sourcing.

Read the full paper here.

Having been launched in London, we now look forward to presenting the paper and discussing its findings at the UN Forum on Business and Human Rights in Geneva on 28 November. You can register here.
