OECD Guidelines for responsible business conduct
The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises set out the principles and standards for responsible business conduct expected by the governments of the Netherlands and 45 other countries from multinational enterprises to observe. The Guidelines help companies deal with matters such as responsible supply chain management, human rights, child labour and environment.
By applying the OECD Guidelines, you can increase corporate transparency and reduce risks. As a result, your customers, financiers, shareholders, and society in general will have greater confidence in your enterprise. Companies that say no to child labour, corruption and pollution in their supply chains find it easier to obtain financing, are eligible for government contracts and are less susceptible to pressure from society at large.
