The Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR) announced the formation of the Investor Alliance for Human Rights, a new initiative designed to expand collective investor action on a range of critical human rights issues.
The primary objectives of the Alliance will be to:
- Build a collective action platform that allows for the quick mobilization of a broad group of investors to advocate on urgent business and human rights issues. Alliance members will address both critical public policy challenges, and emergent human rights risks arising from corporate operations and supply chains;
- Coordinate strategies with relevant stakeholders that can help amplify investor efforts, and;
- Expand the current shareholder engagement agenda on human rights.
