Rene Cassin Human Rights Index. Why?

Rene Cassin Human Rights Index and Project 2023-2030 helps to implement Human Rights and evaluate Human Rights Impact in business following U N Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs).



Rene Cassin Human Rights Index is named in memoire of Professor Rene Cassin Nobel Prize who drafted and inspired the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.




All businesses in the UK – large or small – have a responsibility to respect human rights. The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) call upon businesses to make a public commitment to respect human rights, carry out human rights due diligence, and provide a remedy when things go wrong. Human rights due diligence is the process through which a company understands when, where and how it could have impacts on human rights, and prioritises these impacts for action. It identifies appropriate measures to mitigate risks, tracks the effectiveness of its efforts, and tells people about their progress.

The UK government has published a National Action Plan for implementing the UNGPs where they set out their expectation for UK companies to respect human rights wherever they operate.
