The importance of evaluating and monitoring investments for human rights risks is growing and presents several challenges for investors in today’s global capital markets. Financial institutions need to identify and mitigate how commercial lending practices and project financing, particularly in emerging markets and complex environments, may be directly or indirectly complicit in causing adverse impacts to human rights.
