Reducing transaction risk

A human rights review is part of EKN’s business risk assessment and can help to reduce both financial risk and human rights risk. Defence material transactions are exempted from the human rights assessment.

EKN’s assessment of human rights impacts places particular emphasis on the rights that are linked to the business activity’s local impacts. These include, for example, working conditions, the effect on health and safety in the surrounding area, resettlement, indigenous peoples, vulnerable groups and cultural heritage.
