Promoting Responsible Supply Chains in Asia
Investing in People, Planet and Prosperity
The Responsible Supply Chains in Asia programme, implemented together with the International Labour Organisation and the European Union, aims to help companies and governments across global supply chains and take action to create an enabling environment and respect for human and labour rights.
The 3-year programme (2018-2020) is carried out in partnership with Japan, an OECD member and the only country under the Programme that has adhered to the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and has set up a National Contact Point for RBC, and five partner economies, namely China (OECD Key Partner), Thailand, Viet Nam, Philippines, and Myanmar.
Due diligence as a catalyst for responsible agricultural supply chains in Asia
23 companies along agricultural and seafood supply chains operating in Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam are taking part in the OECD Pilot on Responsible Agricultural Supply Chains in Southeast Asia which aims to promote understanding and uptake of supply chain due diligence recommendations of the OECD-FAO Guidance for Responsible Agricultural Supply Chains and facilitate a community of learning.
