Seminar with HP on business and human rights

January 2013

On January 23 Enact organised a well-attended seminar with Kelli Schlegel, Human Rights & Global Citizenship Program Manager at Hewlett-Packard (HP), on business and human rights. Kelli discussed HP’s journey to integrate human rights into its operations and how HP conduct human rights due diligence today.

In the second part of the seminar, Enact’s Anna Nilsdotter shared her thoughts on current and potential future trends in the field of business and human rights. Some of Anna’s predictions were that issues like tax evasion and living wage will get more attention in the future, and that governments will get more active in steering companies towards good human rights practices.
