Ranking Digital Rights Index 2015 launched at UN Forum on Business and Human Rights

The 2015 Digital Rights Corporate Accountability Index was launched in Geneva during the 4th Annual UN Forum on Business and Human Rights. The index ranks Internet and telecommunications companies on their ‘public commitments and disclosed policies affecting users’ freedom of expression and privacy’. Furthermore, the index can be used as a tool to identify best practices, as well as obstacles faced by companies to ‘respect human rights in the very digital spheres they helped to create and continue to shape‘.
