Verisk Maplecroft to present on human rights and business risk at Convergences World Forum

Verisk Maplecroft is happy to announce that we will be speaking at the Convergences World Forum on how businesses can assess and address human rights risks.

The conference is a platform for over 7,000 professionals working on social and environmental challenges and will be held on 4-5th September in Paris. The Convergences World Forum aims to promote the Sustainable Development Goals and innovate for “Zero Exclusion, Zero Carbon, Zero Poverty World.”

The topics discussed at the conference will range from human rights and impact investing to sustainable agriculture and climate change. Dr Liudmila Chambers, Principal Consultant at Verisk Maplecroft, will join the session on “Human rights and business: from risk identification to action”. Five other speakers from business and civil society – including Total, Société Général, BSR (Business for Social Responsibility), RHSF (Ressources Humaines Sans Frontières) and EDH (Association entreprises pour les droits de l’homme) – will share their views on the following three questions: (1) What are the risk identification tools available for companies? (2) What is the basis for risk prioritisation? (3) What role for stakeholders in this step?

More information is available via the convergences website - http://www.convergences.org/en/world-forum/
