This note describes work undertaken by the OECD to support the implementation of the 2015 G7 Leaders’ Declaration in the area of responsible business conduct. Four areas of action are covered: outreach on responsible business conduct (RBC) standards to other countries; development of guidance for supply chain due diligence; monitoring of multi-stakeholder initiatives; and strengthening National Contact Points.
This publication applies the lessons from the OECD’s analysis of disaster risk financing practices and the development of guidance to the specific case of floods. This report provides an overview of the approaches that economies facing various levels of flood risk and economic development have taken to managing the financial impacts of floods.
In order to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth, there is a need not only for more, but for better investment, including through investment policy frameworks that foster responsible business conduct (RBC). This paper describes the OECD's efforts to promote RBC through the application of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
The call for international co-operation in the area of international investment comes as the investment treaty system shows early signs of transformational change. This paper describes this change and discusses how the OECD provides a platform for enhancing inter-governmental and multi-stakeholder dialogue, along with evidence to support fruitful policy dialogue.
Given the important role that trade and investment can play in increasing productivity, strengthening innovation, increasing wages and improving working conditions, current low trade growth and below average FDI flows are worrying. This paper provides a series of recommendations to ensure that trade and investment stimulate economic growth to the fullest extent possible.
