The UNGPs have been widely accepted as the normative standard on business and human
rights. Drawing from the author's experience in the extractives sector, they have explored how the UNGPs were applied at BG Group in the period between 2010 and 2016. They have described some of the underlying design principles that informed the company’s approach at the time, and explored some of the dilemmas and challenges that accompany the practical implementation of the corporate responsibility to respect human rights.
