OECD Responsible Business Conduct Policy Reviews
The OECD Responsible Business Conduct (RBC) policy reviews focus on the government’s role in enabling and promoting responsible business practices. The main objective these country reviews is to provide a reference for consolidating and implementing a strong RBC policy framework based on the country’s policies and regulations in the areas covered by the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, as well as government action to promote and incentivise RBC through trade, investment, public procurement and other policies.
RBC and COVID-19
The OECD RBC Policy Reviews are also a useful resource in the context of the crisis triggered by the pandemic of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). In light of the severe and long-lasting consequences that this crisis will have on societies, economies and livelihoods, adopting an RBC approach in government and business responses has become critical. Mainstreaming RBC into these responses can help the Government of Peru and companies operating in the country make decisions and address the environmental, social and governance issues related to the crisis, but also ensure that such responses do not create further risks to people, the planet and society.
