The Corporate Human Rights Benchmark, an initiative driven by Aviva Investors, Business & Human Rights Resource Centre, Calvert Investments, Eiris, IHRB and VBDO to create the world's first wide-scale benchmark on corporate human rights performance, has today published a summary of key insights raised by stakeholders during the global consultations on the draft CHRB methodology and the proposed approach the CHRB team will take to address the issues raised.

The summary includes all submissions to the online consultation process, inputs via bilateral meetings, 8 webinars, and 9 in-person consultation meetings held in Paris, Amsterdam, London, Johannesburg, Sao Paulo, Hong Kong, Sydney, Tokyo and New York.

In total the CHRB team received feedback from over 400 stakeholders: businesses and business associations, civil society organisations, investors, international organisations, government departments, consultants and academics.
