The creation of an open-source and wide-scale benchmark on corporate human rights performance runs counter to a long-established business model of providing such intelligence on a paid-for basis. This means the CHRB relies on the passion and commitment of stakeholders committed to supporting its long-term success. 

We are grateful to the following governments, investors and foundations that have supported our journey to date. 

  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands 
  • Swiss Confederation’s Federal Department of Foreign Affairs
  • Department for Business, Innovation and Skills United Kingdom
  • Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust  
  • APG Asset Management 
  • Aviva Investors  
  • Calvert Investments  
  • Nordea Wealth Management 
  • CNV International 

To fully ensure its independence, the CHRB will not receive funding from any companies, except for investors.
