On 15 September, an interesting post on the always interesting FCPA Blog is concerned with a new guide on connecting the anti-corruption and human rights agendas: A guide for business and employers’ organisations. It comes at a time when several jurisdictions will be introducing new regulations on human rights due diligence.
It also provided a link to this flyer from the Basel Institute on Governance from 7 September which looked at synergies in anti-corruption and human rights compliance – which says that companies invest significant resources in anti-corruption and human rights compliance programmes, often developing them separately within an organization. BIS says that it believes there are synergies between these areas that will contribute to the effectiveness and cost efficiencies of both programmes.
The guide referred to in the post is from Business at OECD (BIAC) and the International Organisation of Employers.
