Team certified in human rights impact assessment
In a move to more comprehensively target the assessment of human rights issues encountered when undertaking Environmental and Social (E&S) Performance services, our core E&S team (in the Netherlands, United Kingdom and South Africa) obtained certification in Human Rights Impact Assessment. The training ensures relevant human rights expertise is integrated into the conduct of the Environmental and Social Due Diligence and Impact Assessment services we deliver. It supports our aim of having at least two senior consultants fully equipped to conduct Human Rights Impact Assessments irrespective of country, industry sector or project stage. As part of the impact assessment and due diligence we conduct in line with IFC Performance Standards on Environmental and Social Sustainability, we already cover human rights issues; however thanks to this training we are now better equipped to identify them according to the normative framework of the UN Guiding Principles and advise clients on how to best avoid, cease, mitigate or remediate issues.
