"We believe in a world where business gets done with respect for people’s dignity. No caveats. No exceptions"

Caroline Rees, President and Co-Founder, Shift

Shift is the leading center of expertise on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

Our global team of experts works across all continents and sectors to challenge assumptions, push boundaries, and redefine corporate practice, in order to build a world where business gets done with respect for people’s dignity, everywhere and all the time. We are a non-profit, mission-driven organization headquartered in New York City.

What we do

Our vision is a future where businesses have the knowledge and skills to respect human rights, and markets drive and reward leading practice.

To achieve our vision we equip business leaders to implement the Guiding Principles, and we engage those who influence companies' action to create the incentives, requirements and collaboration needed to embed respect for human rights into business.
