Annual Human Rights Report

We believe it’s important to communicate with rights holders about our human rights work in an open and transparent way

Meta's Annual Human Rights Report

In line with our Corporate Human Rights Policy, we are committed to reporting annually on how we’re addressing human rights impacts, including by sharing relevant insights arising from human rights due diligence and the actions we are taking in response.

In bringing this information together in a single document, we’re seeking to create a predictable, replicable reporting and disclosure cycle. We’re also seeking to align it with emerging best practice in reporting standards. Our human rights policy is based on the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs).

Below, you’ll find all of our annual human rights reports, along with any accompanying materials.

2022 Annual Report

Meta’s second annual Human Rights Report, covering the calendar year 2022 and published in September 2023, demonstrates how we seek to live up to the commitments made in our Corporate Human Rights Policy. The report shows how we are building on our work to respect human rights, how we assess potential impacts that could be linked to our services, and what we are doing to mitigate these risks.

In the 2022 report, we disclose key findings from our Comprehensive Human Rights Salient Risk Assessment (CSRA) and describe how we have followed up on the recommendations from previous human rights due diligence regarding the Philippines, Israel and Palestine, and India. We also share insights and actions or case studies from elections and crisis management; AI and language strategies; and more.
