Welcome to the Briink Good Governance Screener! This user guide will walk you through the simple steps to make the most of the Briink platform.

💡 What is the Good Governance Screener?

Briink’s Good Governance Screener helps you assess compliance of your policy documents with various environmental, social and governance policies.

Currently, the tool supports the following topics:

  • Human Rights

  • Fair competition

  • Taxation

  • Bribery, bribe, solicitation and extortion

These focus areas correspond to the Minimum Safeguards of the EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Economic Activities. The Minimum Safeguards requires compliance with a number of interconnected frameworks including the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, Declaration of the International Labour Organisation on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, and the International Bill of Human Rights.

Even if you are not exposed to the EU Taxonomy, performing a Minimum Safeguards assessment provides meaningful insights on the governance and social risk profile of the firm. If you want to learn more about Minimum Safeguards, you can read this article on the Briink blog.
