Human Rights and Corporate Social Responsibility

This submission by the Human Rights Law Resource Centre Ltd to the Corporations and Markets Advisory Committee considers the issue of corporate social responsibility in a human rights framework. The submission contends that corporations have the potential and capacity to, on the one hand, contribute significantly to, and on the other hand, derogate significantly from, human rights in local, regional, national and even international communities and environments.  At its best, corporate social responsibility is corporate governance and conduct that contributes to the realisation of human rights.
