Responsible Business Advancing Peace: Examples from Companies, Investors & Global Compact Local Networks (UN Global Compact and PRI, 2013)

This report builds on the previously published “Guidance on Responsible Business in Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas: A Resource for Companies and Investors” (UN Global Compact and PRI, 2010), which outlines key ‘challenges’ for companies in high-risk areas and identifies directly related ‘guidance points’ to help them improve their responsible conduct. The report highlights the practical value of these ‘guiding points’ by presenting numerous case studies of how companies, investors and Global Compact Local Networks have used and implemented them. The case studies include examples from various industries (see pages 20, 42, 50 and 54 for extractive companies) and address different issues in the four areas of the initial Guidance: Core Business, Government relations, Local Stakeholder Engagement, and Strategic Social Investment.
