Human Rights Impact Assessment Guidance and Toolbox

The Danish Institute for Human Rights
This guidance and toolbox helps conduct, commission, review or monitor human rights impact assessments of business projects and activities.

The purpose of this Guidance and Toolbox is to provide those who are involved in conducting, commissioning, reviewing or monitoring Human Rights Impact Assessments (HRIA) of business projects and activities with guidance and practical tools; with the view to ensuring that such assessments apply a human rights-based approach and are consistent with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UN Guiding Principles).

An updated version of the Human Rights Impacts Assessment Guidance and Toolbox was launched in August 2020. This analyses the effects that business activities have on rights-holders such as workers, local community members, consumers and others. HRIA follows a human rights-based approach, which integrates human rights principles such as non-discrimination into the assessment process.

Significance for seafood businesses: 

Not seafood-specific. There are a number of organisations that offer practical business support to help manage socially responsible business practices. There are also various tools and guidance notes available which are free to use which will help buyers manage their supply chain and make a more informed judgement on the risks they face when sourcing seafood.
