Event Details

The UN Global Compact Network Australia, in partnership with Allens, invites you to the 7th Australian Dialogue on Business and Human Rights, Truly embedding human rights within corporate sustainability in Sydney.

The Dialogue brings together representatives from Australian business, the investor community, government, civil society, and academia to discuss emerging risks and opportunities, and explore ways to collaborate on the continued implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the UN Global Compact 10 Principles.

This year’s Dialogue recognises the evolving complexity of corporate sustainability and provides a platform to connect, pause and reflect on how to best integrate respect for human rights into corporate sustainability and strategy. Taking a truly integrated approach will require the business community to work collaboratively with a vocal and empowered civil society, investor cohort and government. The 2022 Australian Dialogue on Business and Human Rights will bring together these key stakeholders to explore how we can best align towards this common goal.
