Lessons for financial institutions’ human rights due diligence in the private security sector


Private security companies often operate in high-risk areas. This involves major human rights risks, which are often overlooked in screenings and risk analyses. During a webinar, organized recently by PAX and Achmea Investment Management together with the international RBC Agreement for Pension Funds, experts gave information and recommendations on how pension funds can identify, prevent and mitigate risks in the private security sector. The recording of the webinar, recommendations and useful documents are now available.

During a field visit to an organic farm, inspiring conversations arose between financial institutions, the government, science, NGOs and farmer Jan Wieringa. A longread on the visit is available.
