As part of their response to Covid-19, the OECD has launched a new Hub that promotes a responsible business conduct approach in response to the crisis. Doing so ‘…will generate short and long-term benefits such as increased resilience, a fairer and more inclusive distribution of benefits from recovery measures, and a stronger contribution to sustainable development.’ Visit the Hub and read their summary paper for more information.
The AusNCP is currently monitoring the progress of COVID-19 and how this impacts our daily business. Due to the current circumstances it is likely our timeframes will be delayed and we remain in contact with stakeholders regarding any procedural delays. Businesses are encouraged to utilise our new OECD Guidelines summary checklist as a tool to support high quality decisions during this period of social and economic change.
