Due Diligence Guidance

The OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct provides practical support for enterprises about how to effectively implement the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

Businesses can play a major role in contributing to economic, environmental and social progress, especially when they minimise the adverse impacts of their operations, supply chains and other business relationships.

The OECD Guidelines recommend that enterprises conduct due diligence to identify, prevent or mitigate actual and potential adverse impacts from their business activities. 

The Due Diligence Guidance can help enterprises avoid and address adverse impacts related to workers, human rights, the environment, bribery, consumers and corporate governance that may be associated with their operations, supply chains and other business relationships.

Guidance has been developed for specific sectors and includes additional explanations, tips and examples of due diligence. The Guidance is available in several languages.
