This paper has been written to inform the UN Human Rights B-Tech Project and has benefitted from expansive engagement with various stakeholders. I am very grateful to those individuals who volunteered their time and expertise to feed into the development of the UNGPs compass. I would especially like to express my gratitude to Lisa Hsin for her contributions to the expert focus groups and analytical reflections in autumn 2023, as well as to the B-Tech Project team from the UN Human Rights Office (OHCHR). In particular, I would like to thank Lene Wendland and Nathalie Stadelmann at the B-Tech Project for their comments and support, and Florian Wettstein and Isabelle Wildhaber for their academic guidance. Special thanks also to Mathias Risse, Sushma Raman, and Laryssa da Silveira.
