, Other Countries
The ranking is intended as a contribution to Arctic governance and the upholding of indigenous rights, without the use of international treaties, laws, policing, or state intervention. Instead, the ranking aims to create competition among companies to be best on indigenous rights-by honoring and shaming companies, raising awareness, and encouraging companies to make explicit commitments to uphold indigenous rights. For the ranking to have this effect on the companies, it is important that people know about it and refer to it.
