First Peoples Worldwide works from a foundation of Indigenous values to achieve a sustainable future for all.
First Peoples Worldwide is a leader in deploying strategies to move the market towards respect for the rights of Indigenous Peoples. We translate on-the-ground impacts of investment to corporate decision-makers, and increase corporate accountability to Indigenous Peoples at the intersection of business, law, and finance. Our strategies to build the business case for Indigenous Peoples include:
Working directly with Indigenous leadership and organizations to design and deploy targeted corporate campaigns, and facilitating high-level dialogue between Indigenous Peoples and corporations where there is a direct impact on Indigenous lands, territories, resources, and rights.
Elevating ongoing or emergent human rights violations at an international level, often in parallel with corporate engagement.
Providing trainings and facilitating consultations with Indigenous Peoples, corporations, financial institutions, and investors.
Connecting partners across sectors and fields for collaboration, information sharing, and growth, and presenting at convenings to integrate Indigenous perspectives and mainstream Indigenous knowledge as a critical factor in decision-making.
Research & Tools
Providing tools, resources, and research for corporations, financial institutions, and investors to better integrate Indigenous rights, as enumerated in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, into routine business operations; developing and publishing research and case studies to draw out overarching trends in the field; and providing access and context to facilitate innovative movement forward.
