The new programme Responsible business conduct in Latin America and the Caribbean, implemented together with the International Labour Organization, the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the European Union, aims to promote smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in the EU and Latin America and Caribbean by supporting responsible business conduct practices in line with the UN, ILO and OECD instruments.
Activities will build on the OECD’s experience in promoting the effective uptake by companies of the OECD guidance on due diligence in various sectors, including minerals, extractives, agriculture, garment and footwear, and financial sectors and include capacity building, research, convening of stakeholders and peer learning.
The programme will be undertaken over 4 years (2019-2022) in partnership with Chile and Mexico, both OECD members, as well Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica and Peru, which have all adhered to the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and have set up a NCP, and two partner economies, namely Ecuador and Panama.
