Invited by the School of Business and the Faculty of Law and Social Sciences of the UCC, on November 11 we participated as exhibitors in the Conference “Business, Sustainability and Human Rights Standards”, which brought together academics, officials and representatives of the Civil society of Córdoba and Argentina that address the Human Rights and Business Agenda in their activities.

The event was held within the framework of the Fifth Session of the UN on the binding treaty on human rights and companies, held in Geneva in October. The topics addressed included the standards on business and human rights, the progress that has been made in the draft of the draft treaty on the subject, reparations in the framework of human rights violations, among others

In the second panel, the exponents advocate the themes of the principle of access to sustainable consumption, Companies B and sustainable development, and, finally, the way in which sustainability can increase the profitability of companies.

Fudeps was in charge of the exhibition on Companies B and sustainable development. Our exhibition addressed this new business phenomenon, the benefits of being part of this type of companies and the irregularities that some companies present. Specifically, the Porta case was mentioned, and who or who are responsible for ensuring that B-certified companies fulfill their responsibilities of generating positive social and environmental impacts.
