International responsible business standards call upon companies to address those impacts. This video details the impacts that can be associated with exiting—and outlines measures companies can take to address those impacts. It is essential viewing for companies leaving Iran.
The abuse of migrants in the workplace, and their vulnerability to modern slavery, is a growing problem worldwide. This creates risks for companies as they can find themselves linked to migrant worker exploitation. In Iran, this risk is acute due to the large number of migrant labourers in many sectors of the economy. This IBR video highlights key aspects of the issue and offers companies initial suggestions for addressing the challenge in Iran.
This video is the first in a series that IBR will produce on doing responsible business in Iran.
