OECD guidelines for multinational enterprises are CSR standards for entrepreneurs doing business internationally. The Dutch government values these standards. If you want to receive government support, following the OECD guidelines is essential.
The Dutch government has drawn up these guidelines with 45 other countries, divided into the following themes:
- Transparency and reporting
- Human rights
- Working conditions
- Consumer interests
- Science and technology
- Competition and taxes.
The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct are practical guides. The guides help organisations apply the OECD guidelines to their business operations. Working according to the OECD guidelines inspires confidence among customers, financiers, shareholders and society.
