Guidance for Companies on Respecting the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation: Bringing a Human Rights Lens to Corporate Water Stewardship

Guidance for Companies on Respecting the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation: Bringing a Human Rights Lens to Corporate Water Stewardship
  • United Nations Global Compact. January 2015
  • This guidance provides companies with practical measures on how to bring a human rights lens to their existing corporate water stewardship practices. It aims to help companies translate their responsibility to respect the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation (HRWS) into their existing water management policies, processes, and company cultures. It complements related efforts to clarify the obligations and responsibilities of other actors (particularly states and public or private water and sanitation service providers) with regard to the HRWS. The report is designed to be applicable to a broad range of corporate water users, and underscores the important nature of effective stakeholder engagement throughout the process.
