Addressing the impact of human rights on business is the focus of a three-day meeting taking place in Geneva this week.

The first UN Forum on Business and Human Rights brings together representatives from multinational corporations and people from communities affected by their activities.

The aim is to assess implementation of global standards which prevent and address the risk of negative human rights impacts arising from business processes.
