iuvenal publishes study with UN Global Compact

We are extremely pleased that ours, together with the UN Global Compact Network Germany written report has now been published.

In this publication we have examined the challenges that SMEs and large companies face as a result of EU regulation on artificial intelligence and human rights.

What is the report about?

General human rights due diligence obligations for companies have already been enshrined in various frameworks, including the UN Global Compact and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. However, the rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) in business and society raises new ethical and regulatory questions. In particular, the current draft of the EU's AI regulation presents companies with the challenge of taking fundamental and human rights risks into account when implementing AI systems.

The following publication therefore addresses the question of what impact the development and application of AI has on companies' human rights due diligence obligations. The current proposal for the AI regulation creates an initial basis for assessing the human rights risks associated with AI. However, when AI is rolled out internationally, there are still human rights risks, particularly with regard to the potential misuse of AI solutions by third parties, but also due to various legal frameworks.

In order to protect human rights along the entire supply and value chain, it is urgently necessary for companies to integrate AI-specific risks into existing business due diligence processes, but also to initiate appropriate measures to address human rights risks To reduce the advance and derive appropriate mitigation measures.
