OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment & Footwear Sector

The garment and footwear sector is one of the largest consumer goods sectors in the world. Although it represents an important economic driving force, the tragic collapse of the Rana Plaza factory in 2013 brought global attention to the risks of severe adverse impacts both in manufacturing but also further upstream.

 

 

Adopted in 2017, the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment and Footwear Sector establishes a common understanding of due diligence in the sector to help companies meet the due diligence expectations laid out in the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

 

 

The Guidance, which was developed through a multi-stakeholder process, was approved by all governments adhering to the OECD Guidelines and endorsed by business, trade unions and civil society. It is a direct response to the G7 Leaders’ Declaration on 7-8 June 2015 in Schloss Elmau which welcomed international efforts to promulgate industry-wide due diligence standards in the textile and ready-made garment sector. The Guidance is applicable to all companies – large and small – operating in global garment and footwear supply chains.

OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector

Save the date - green 200 x 42

The 2021 forum will take place from 2-4 February 2021. A decision will be taken nearer the date to determine whether the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic will enable the forum to take place at the OECD Conference Centre in Paris or whether it will be organised virtually.

This annual event convenes over 500 representatives from government, business, workers and civil society to discuss key issues and risks related to due diligence in global garment and footwear supply chains.
