Integrating a gender perspective into supply chain due diligence
Date of publication
8 March 2021
The Integrating a Gender Perspective into Supply Chain Due Diligence note is based on the OECD-FAO Guidance for Responsible Agricultural Supply Chains and the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct and presents what gender sensitive due diligence looks like in practice. It provides illustrative examples of how companies along agricultural supply chains can integrate a gender perspective into their due diligence actions.
The OECD-FAO Guidance provides a practical framework and set of recommendations to companies to carry out gender sensitive due diligence and prevent and mitigate risks that may differ for or may be specific to women proactively. Due diligence, when implemented effectively, can help companies know and show that they are taking steps to address gender-related risks throughout the supply chain. It can also support companies in demonstrating its contributions to reaching Goal 5: Achieve gender equality and empowering all women and girls.
