Disclosures on managing human rights risks
ACCA and Net Balance Foundation are pleased to share their latest research, focusing on the adequacy of disclosure about risk management and reporting quality of companies in the ASX 100.
Some key research findings:
1. 47 ASX 100 companies identified as ‘exposed’ to human rights risks through their areas of operations
2. 90% appear to have management systems that are insufficient to mitigate exposure to human rights risks.
3. Only 15% disclose evidence of human rights policy commitment and only 6% are judged to have adequate reporting on human rights management and outcomes.
