CBIS has joined the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility’s new Investor Alliance for Human Rights, a collective that aims to tackle a range of critical human rights issues. As a long-time member of ICCR, CBIS is eager to partner with concerned investors and other human rights leaders in the new initiative to coordinate and amplify the global investor voice on human rights challenges.

“In the coalition with our partners at ICCR, we have successfully engaged hundreds of companies globally on their human rights performance,” said Julie Tanner, Director of Catholic Responsible Investing at CBIS and ICCR board member. “Over the course of several decades, we have seen corporate acknowledgement of human rights risks grow into the adoption of policies and supplier codes that often become recognized as industry best practice. This progress is due in no small part to investor influence.”

Julie added, “The Catholic faith teaches that human dignity can be protected and communities can thrive only when human rights are protected.”

You can find more information on the Alliance and a series of short videos from Julie and other human rights leaders on the website and in ICCR’s press release regarding the launch.
