How does the responsibility to respect human rights apply to companies operating in the Energy and Natural Resources Sector? How does this relate to hard legal risk at a domestic and international level and, what practical steps should a business take to fulfil this responsibility and reduce its legal risk?
This morning, we had the pleasure of launching our practical guide on the Responsibility to Respect Human Rights in the Energy and Natural Resources Sector at an industry event in Johannesburg. The importance of natural resources to the South African economy and the prominence of human rights in the South African constitution and labour law have brought these issues to the fore and it was fascinating to hear diverse perspectives from lawyers, corporate social responsibility experts and senior executives in the sector.
