Meaningful Right-Holder Engagement during Human Rights Due Diligence





Join us to learn how to identify and engage right-holders across the Human Rights Due Diligence process.

This session is open to all organizations participating in the UN Global Compact.

Companies aiming to effectively implement the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) often face a challenge in the lack of meaningful consultation, dialogue, and engagement with (potentially) affected right-holders during the human rights due diligence process.

This session will provide a practical overview for business practitioners on how to identify the right-holders across the HRDD process, understand their concerns, and decide on the level of engagement with them. This webinar will address the following questions:

  • What is the difference between stakeholders and right-holders in HRDD?
  • How can I identify key stakeholders and right-holders, and consider their vulnerability?
  • How can I best capture their voices, especially when under time and budget constraints?
  • What does ‘meaningful engagement’ actually look like?

This session is organized by Global Compact Network Netherlands in partnership with KPMG. It takes place on 25 January at 11–12:30 EET (Finnish time).
