Is the Reporting Framework an additional burden on companies?

The UN Guiding Principles Reporting Framework is designed not only to be feasible for companies of any size or sector to use, but also to provide them with a useful tool.

First, with increasing regulatory requirements for reporting on human rights, this Framework helps companies know what kind of information to report, making the task much easier.

Second, it consists of questions to which any company should seek to have answers in order to know whether it is managing risks to human rights, which increasingly also represent risks to the business.

Third, it includes linkages to other reporting and human rights-related initiatives to show how responding to their requirements can help answer questions in the Framework.
