Course: Putting Human Rights Due Diligence into Practice

The European Outdoor Group announces a training program to help outdoor companies navigate the ins and outs of Human Rights Due Diligence and embed risk-management into their organization and supply chains.

On the back of the European Outdoor Summit, Annecy in 2022, and as part of the European Outdoor Group’s (EOG) portfolio of specialist conferences and courses, the EOG is proud to announce that it will be hosting an in-depth training course on Human Rights Due Diligence.

This training programme will be provided by Business and Human Rights experts twentyfifty, an award-winning management consultancy working with global companies to deliver on their commitments to respect human rights and contribute to a more equitable and inclusive world. 

Tailored for the outdoor sector, this course will equip practitioners with a thorough theoretical understanding of Human Rights Due Diligence (HRDD), as well as the expertise and tools to embed HRDD into organizations and supply chains.

“Human rights have never been more relevant for business”

The 4-week, interactive, virtual and in-person programme, combines expert tutorials, case studies and practical assignments across 5 modules, supported by a set of bespoke HRDD tools, templates and guidance documents, and a half day workshop on Risk Assessment development.

“Human rights have never been more relevant for business especially with the mounting policy and compliance being introduced, and so we really wanted to do something to help here,” shares Dr. Katy Stevens, Head of CSR & Sustainability at EOG.

“Furthermore, we know how much value there is in getting our members together and so the in-person days will be a great opportunity to generate some strong relationships to work together in the future.”

This course is an invaluable resource to:

  • Your business or clients recognize the strategic importance of protecting human rights in operations/supply chains.
  • You are a sustainability, procurement, CSR or human rights professional.
  • You want to develop your skills and knowledge in human rights.


On completion of the programme, participants will understand what is required of businesses with respect to Human Rights, including recent legislative development and will arm them with the tools, templates and guidance to develop a Human Rights Due Diligence approach suitable for a business of any size.

Spaces are limited to a maximum of 25 so for more information and to book a place (discount for EOG members) please go to the website here.
