Responsible Business Conduct at the OECD





‌Inclusive Business at the OECD aims to support global efforts to tackle inequality, increase prosperity, and ensure that the benefits of growth are widely shared.
More equal societies benefit business and its ecosystems:

  • Higher political and social stability;
  • More engaged and productive employees; 
  • More sustainable and productive engagement with the supply chain;
  • Stronger reputational capital;
  • Appealing to key demographics - social and economic inequality was ranked as the top concern in a recent survey of more than 1,000 millennials in 125 countries, ahead of climate change and education.


To this end, the OECD is working to create a network of Businesses for Inclusive Growth.

This network will be complementary to the existing Friends of Inclusive Growth (FOIG) and Champion Mayors for Inclusive Growth networks. Members will share best practices with like-minded peers and have access to other OECD networks and policymakers.
