Human Rights and Financial Services

Perspective and Guidance for Rights-Respecting Finance

The financial services industry—from asset owners and managers to commercial and investment banks—has a catalytic effect on the behavior of business and the economy. The vast range of financial products, services, and client relationships has enormous potential to create a global economy that puts people’s lives and the health of the planet at the center.

米6体育APP's  human rights and financial services experts and a network of civil society allies help financial institutions respect internationally recognized human rights. Our work is grounded in global frameworks, namely the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises .
