is this about social performance of a company, or about business impact on human rights?

In practice, a large proportion of what is, and should be, included within definitions of a company’s ‘social performance’ is about respect for human rights, even if other terminology is often used. Our research into ESG (environmental, social and governance) measures bears this out. “S” measurements that reflect corporate philanthropy or community volunteering by employees are some that would fall outside the category of ‘respect for human rights', as those indicators look at how a company spends profits, not how it makes them.
