The Business Case for Indigenous Rights
What are common risks to businesses that don’t respect Indigenous and tribal peoples' rights? And how can companies better understand the impact of their footprint on Indigenous peoples?
To explore these topics, we have the pleasure of talking to Moira Birss and Kate Finn. Kate is the Executive Director of First Peoples Worldwide and Moira is the Climate and Finance Director of Amazon Watch, a nonprofit that works to protect the rainforest and advance the rights of Indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin.
In our conversation, Moira and Kate will talk about accounting for Indigenous peoples’ human and land rights — and how it will enable businesses to understand their business and climate risks.
