True to the belief in multi-stakeholder dialogue and as a next step towards establishing the WBA, the WBA founding partners organised a series of global and regional roundtables, expert meetings, and online consultations between September 2017 and June 2018. In close collaboration with stakeholders, we aimed to refine WBA’s vision, outline its institutional structure, and inform its priorities in terms of industries and SDGs. All the inputs that were gathered are currently being analysed, and the publication of the synthesis report is expected in July 2018.

While establishing the WBA, we build on initiatives such as the Corporate Human Rights Benchmark (CHRB) and the work done by Index Initiative.

Stay in touch and keep up to date with our findings and results from the consultation phase.

To get an idea of what input and insights were gathered during the consultation phase, have a look at our consultation documents that were prepared for each roundtable. After every roundtable we published summary reports outlining major themes and discussion points.
