Business Accountability And Responsibility (Bar)

Striving to carry out operations with respect for the human rights of others

Tenaganita seeks to work with and support business enterprises that strive to carry out their operations with respect for the human rights of others.  The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights explains that the responsibility to respect human rights requires that business enterprises: (a) Avoid causing or contributing to adverse human rights impacts through their own activities, and address such impacts when they occur; (b) Seek to prevent or mitigate adverse human rights impacts that are directly linked to their operations, products or services in their supply chain even if they have not contributed to those impacts.

Under the BAR program, Tenaganita provides the following services:

  • Training on human rights for workers and management

  • Social audit to identify social risks in the enterprise and in the supply chain

  • Consultancy assistance for enterprises to formulate and implement policies that protect human rights of the workers including migrant workers.

  • Social audit training for enterprises to develop internal capacity to identify social risks and to strengthen the framework to protect and promote  human rights within the enterprise
