ABOUT THE UPDATED BETA VERSION

__

We’ve made important progress since we first published a beta version of our Leadership & Governance Indicators, in December 2019. We have now focused all of the governance indicators on the role of boards or equivalent senior governing bodies. We’ve also refined the indicators to a more concise list of ten governance indicators and twelve leadership indicators. Our next step is to develop supporting resources to enable boards, executives and investors to apply the indicators.

ABOUT THE LEADERSHIP & GOVERNANCE INDICATORS

This resource provides a menu of indicators of leadership and governance that help evaluate a company’s progress towards building a rights-respecting culture.

The primary intended users of the resource are:

  • Business leaders seeking to assess the strengths and weaknesses of their company leadership, governance and culture with regard to respect for human rights;
    
  • Investors and civil society organizations seeking to strengthen their analysis, strategies and engagement with companies regarding progress towards respect for human rights.
