An IPIECA report on integrating human rights into management systems has been published by the SPE Journal of Petroleum Technology. The report responds to the increasing emergence of external guidelines on human rights due diligence and reviews the method of integrating the practice in the management systems of oil and gas companies. Also revealed is how the process of due diligence is consistent with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. The report was initially presented as a paper at the SPE/APPEA HSE International conference in September 2013, in Perth, Australia.
For further guidance on how to implement human rights due diligence please review IPIECA’s practical guide for oil and gas companies.
