In recent years, the link between human rights and the environment has gained increased traction, together with the escalating global expectations that businesses need to act responsibly to minimise their contribution to potential future climate change.
The business case for the corporate sector to prioritize the right to a healthy environment is becoming part and parcel of their corporate policies and strategies towards ensuring responsible and sustainable business practices.
On March 12th, BCSD Malaysia organised the “Business for Human Rights and the Environment” webinar. We have subject-matter expert speakers who shared with us the regulatory aspects of Business and Human Rights, from global perspectives, regional perspectives to local perspectives. Speakers from different business sectors also shared with us about the challenges and opportunities in corporate responsibility in the respect and remedy of human rights and the environment.
