Corporate responsibility requirements from regulation

Corporate responsibility is shaped by regulatory frameworks, themes, and requirements. For impactful corporate responsibility practices, it's crucial to comprehend and implement these regulations. We provide tailored information packages and training sessions for companies, designed to align with the specific needs and preferences of our clients.


Clarifying the 'regulatory tsunami'

We provide tailor-made information packages and training sessions, carefully considering the unique wishes and requirements of our client companies.

The content of these packages includes, for example:

  •  Adherence to the national laws of the countries where the company operates, establishing the minimum legal obligations.
  • The European Union's increasing regulatory standards, often referred to as the 'regulation tsunami', which are elevating mandatory compliance for companies in Europe and setting a new benchmark for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
  • Compliance with globally accepted sustainability guidelines under international law, such as the UN Global Compact, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, and the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • Clarification on which corporate responsibility regulations are pertinent in the specific business context of our clients.

Special training packages: Human rights regulation in the business context 

The content takes into account the following elements:

  • Human rights as defined by international law norms that bind states, with numerous national laws including human rights elements that legally bind companies. By complying with these laws, a company already partly fulfills its human rights responsibilities.
  • The foundation of corporate social responsibility lies in human rights responsibility.
  • A company genuinely responsible for human rights adheres to both national laws and international human rights standards relevant to its operations.
  • The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights serve as a fundamental tool.
  • Identification of the specific set of human rights responsibility regulations applicable to the client company.
  • Principles of gender equality, equal treatment, and non-discrimination are integral to human rights responsibility and are reflected in Finnish national legislation (such as the Equality Act). This aspect is also developed in collaboration with a partner.
