OECD-FAO Guidance for Responsible Agricultural Supply Chains
OECD and FAO have developed this Guidance to help enterprises observe standards of
responsible business conduct and undertake due diligence along agricultural supply
chains in order to ensure that their operations contribute to sustainable development.
The Guidance comprises:
• A model enterprise policy outlining the standards that enterprises should observe
to build responsible agricultural supply chains;
• A framework for risk-based due diligence describing the five steps that enterprises
should follow to identify, assess, mitigate and account for how they address the adverse
impacts of their activities;
• A description of the major risks faced by enterprises and the measures to mitigate
• Guidance for engaging with indigenous peoples.
