Human Rights Impact Assessment in South Africa

south africa scaled 1


Our client wished to conduct a human rights impact assessment to better understand human rights risks and impacts associated with their operations in South Africa.


We visited the company’s manufacturing and warehousing facilities in several cities to conduct our assessment. In the process, we interviewed dozens of workers in local languages, including Xhosa and Zulu.


Our Human Rights experts found the most salient risks to be related to contract workers at the sites, who lacked decent working conditions and access to an effective grievance mechanism. We provided our client with recommendations to improve the grievance mechanism and to engage directly with their contractors to improve practices.

We are the world’s leading purpose driven, digitally enabled, science-based activator. And always welcome inquiries and partnerships to drive positive change together.
