Every companies, whatever their sizes are, have every reason to be concerned with human rights : big companies and SME, NGO, extrafinancial rating agency and tripartite organisation. How to elaborate a human rights policy? What are the pitfalls to avoid? What risks companies have to handle in sectors as diverse as consumption, construction and energy management? What good practices have already been set up?
