The Valuing Respect Project led by Shift is a three-year collaboration, which aims to develop better ways of using information, metrics and indicators to evaluate business respect for human rights. The project is based on an open process of research, consultation and the gradual crystallization of conclusions and resources. It engages diverse experts and stakeholders, including investors, civil society, business leaders and policymakers. The project is funded by the Norwegian Pension Fund and the Governments of Norway and Finland. Fuller information about the project’s aims, process and initial outputs can be found on the project portal.
