The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre examines how human rights-based approaches can be brought to bear on the operations of international corporations and businesses, particularly with regard to environmental, social, and health-related impacts. As international companies can be the drivers of advances in science and technology, the centre aims to encourage companies to respect human rights by providing relevant information and facilitating constructive discussion.

The website provides resources including guidance on human rights grouped by country, issue and sector; information on principles and standards; and useful tools for monitoring performance. It publishes news and weekly alerts on human rights issues related to business.
