Corporate Human Rights Benchmark
The Corporate Human Rights Benchmark (CHRB) is the first-ever ranking of the world's largest publicly listed companies on their human rights performance. The CHRB has now begun its pilot benchmark process. The final scores will be available in November 2016.
The 2016 pilot benchmark will rank the top 100 companies in the agricultural products, apparel, and extractive industries using a rigorous methodology, developed over two years and in consultation with over 400 companies, industry associations, investors, governments, civil society representatives, academics and lawyers.
The final methodology report is now published and the CHRB disclosure platform is open to receive submissions from selected companies until 15 May 2016.
