Corporate Human Rights Benchmark – Core UNGP Indicators

The Corporate Human Rights Benchmark’s Core UNGP Indicators are a stand-alone methodology for obtaining an overview of whether companies are implementing key expectations of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs).

The methodology consists of 13 indicators which are a subset of our full 2021 Corporate Human Rights Benchmark Methodology which is made up of approximately 60 indicators across five different themes. The Core UNGP Indicators are non-industry specific and deal with three key areas of the UNGPs; high level commitments, human rights due diligence and access to remedy.

This is an updated methodology; the previous version was published in April 2019.
