"Coca-Cola’s Approach to Business and Human Rights"

Brent Wilton

Please join Brent Wilton, Director of Global Workplace Rights at Coca-Cola, for a discussion on Coca-Cola’s approach to business and human rights including how this important topic impacts the company’s operations, supply chain, and stakeholder expectations.

Having trained as a labor lawyer in New Zealand, Brent has spent the last 28 years representing companies and their representative organizations across a range of labor and human rights issues in countries around the world.

Prior to joining Coca-Cola as director of Global Workplace Rights in April of 2015, for the last 15 years, Brent has been based in Switzerland with the International Organization of Employers (IOE) representing the interests of business in 150 countries on global labor and social policy matters across the UN and wider multilateral system, particularly within the International Labor Organization. As a result, Brent has directly engaged with Global Union Federations, NGOs, Governments, other stakeholders and opinion makers in the negotiation and resolution of issues.
