Shift Project Ltd
Shift is an independent, non-profit center for business and human rights practice. Shift is staffed by a team that was centrally involved in shaping and writing the new United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and is chaired by the author of the Guiding Principles, Professor John Ruggieof Harvard Kennedy School. Shift’s vision is a world in which companies have the awareness, motivation and skills to know and show that they are respecting human rights. We contribute to this goal by working with governments, businesses, international organizations and other stakeholders to help put the UN Guiding Principles into practice. We share our learning by developing public guidance materials to help accelerate the achievement of business respect for human rights globally.
