Global Forum on Responsible Business Conduct
The inaugural meeting addressed the Rana Plaza tragedy as a matter of priority with the participation of a high-level delegation from Bangladesh led by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Her Excellency Dr. Dipu Moni. This session focused on the challenges facing the textile industry, how to co-ordinate the actions of countries adhering to the Guidelines and the development of collective responses under the Guidelines’ proactive agenda.
The Global Forum brought together government, business, trade union, civil society and international organisation representatives to address the core challenge of how to do well while doing no harm in an effort to contribute to sustainable development and enduring social progress.
