Dr. Dorothée Baumann-Pauly, Research Director (NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights): "Despite companies’ best intentions, current CSR approaches fail to look deeply at the business models that lead to systemic human rights harms. In the talk, examples from our research in the apparel and tech sectors will illustrate how current business model undermine companies’ efforts to establish respect for human rights. I will offer initial recommendations for what companies can do to align core business mechanisms with their commitment to human rights."
The Business for Peace annual event serves as the main convening platform for the business and peace movement. While Governments hold the primary responsibility for promoting peaceful, just and inclusive societies, the private sector possess the potential to play a key role by investing in, contributing to, and partnering for sustainable development.
The CEO Roundtable will focus on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals into business strategies with special emphasis on partnerships. As the UN Secretary-General calls for enhanced cooperation between the United Nations and the private sector, the high-level event intends to foster partnerships with the UN Organizations based in Vienna.
The annual UN Forum on Business and Human Rights is the global platform for yearly stock-taking and lesson-sharing on efforts to move the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights from paper to practice.
