  • “An essential guide to the world's companies and their records on human rights.”  
    Guardian newspaper
  • “No debate can move forward, no positive change can be made, without facts.  The Resource Centre is the only website to provide such a broad range of balanced information on business and human rights – company by company, country by country, issue by issue.” 
    Mary Robinson (President of Mary Robinson Foundation - Climate Justice; former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights; and former President of Ireland)
  • “The Resource Centre has won a big following among companies, governments, investors, non-government organizations and journalists.”
    Financial Times, “A Fair Approach to Human Rights
  • The Resource Centre was named by University of Connecticut in 2013 as recipient of the Thomas J.

  • The Resource Centre has been named by American Library Association as one of the world's best reference websites
  • It was included on the Phoenix 50 List, announced at Skoll World Forum 2009: “There are many organizations dedicated to promoting human rights, but very few that focus on the interface with business — and none that do it as well as the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre.  It is the leading player helping grow a whole generation of organizations and networks which promote human rights issues within global business.”

  • The United Nations, Intl. Labour Organization, and OECD, have, at their request, linked their sites to the Resource Centre's site.
