Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment and Footwear Sector
Enterprises operating in global supply chains have the potential to generate growth, employment and skills through their operations and sourcing. On the other hand, when enterprises fail to act responsibly, they risk contributing to adverse human rights, labour and environmental impacts in their operations or through their supply chains. The OECD brings unique expertise in convening governments, business and civil society to develop practial approaches to promoting and implementing responsible business conduct globally.
The OECD has developed a Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment and Footwear Sector. This Guidance, developed through an intense multi-stakeholder process, supports a common understanding of due diligence and responsible supply chain management in the sector.
