Stepping up: Protecting collective land rights through corporate due diligence

A guide for global businesses, investors and policy makers

This Guide provides resources, recommended steps, and practical tools for the conduct of effective human rights due diligence by downstream and investor companies in order to meet corporate responsibilities to uphold and protect indigenous peoples’ rights, particularly collective land and associated rights. Indigenous peoples’ collective land rights are most likely to be directly affected by land-intensive commodities sectors, such as agriculture, mining, oil and gas, and infrastructural development. However, other sectors may also generate impacts, and a wide range of sectors are likely to use commodities products and therefore may contain these impacts within their value chains
