Case study

Implementing a leading human rights approach

Sancroft identified potential gaps in the human rights approach of global technology company Canon, by examining best practice standards. We then suggested practical, actionable changes to improve its management of human rights throughout its supply chain.

“Sancroft has supported Canon for many years in our sustainability efforts, so it was natural that we turned to them to help us ensure Canon’s commitment to respect for human rights is appropriate to support responsible corporate conduct and in conformity with international standards.

Sancroft helped us to identify and act on the most important areas to strengthen our approach. Sancroft’s deep understanding of our corporate philosophy and ways of working helped us to address this complex area with confidence.”
