Charting a course for the journey

The task of embedding respect for human rights across a company can seem overwhelming. But it needn’t be so. It’s a matter of working out where to start – and what to do next, and then again after that. By breaking the work into manageable stages, and prioritising these, you can set a roadmap for this work.

A roadmap can also be a helpful tool for communicating the company's approach and priorities to stakeholders. Your plan doesn’t need to be set in stone – it may make sense to course-correct over time, revisiting your priorities, goals and strategies.
