Social Justice

All people have equal rights and should have equal access to opportunities. That’s the principle of social justice and its linked concept, human rights.

Those ideals can seem abstract. But frameworks like the Sustainable Development Goals aim to translate social justice into concrete goals and metrics.

For businesses, addressing social justice includes treating workers fairly and engaging respectfully with communities. That approach benefits everyone. For example, employees, suppliers, and partners who feel respected and safe are more loyal and productive.

NBS guidance on social justice and social sustainability covers a host of topics, from the basics of employee and community engagement to ever-evolving issues like climate justice, modern slavery and inclusive workplaces.
