Global Forum on Responsible Business Conduct

26-27 June 2014 - OECD Conference Centre - Paris

DAY 1   DAY 2  

In today’s interconnected world, responsible business conduct matters more than ever before, as demonstrated by the Rana Plaza tragedy in Bangladesh. One of the main barriers for seeing change on the ground remains a large gap between what responsibility means in theory and how it is implemented on the ground. Moving forward will require a practical approach - answering the “how” questions through concrete action that reinforces the ecosystem of responsibility for all actors.

This Global Forum will bring together policymakers, businesses, trade unions, and civil society to seek these answers. Special attention will be given to developments in emerging economies and challenging investment environments.
