20 June 2011
The 2011 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) guidelines advise MNEs with large numbers of suppliers to assess significant risks of adverse impacts in order to prioritise suppliers for due diligence. Companies that identify adverse impacts from supply chains should use their leverage to influence suppliers to prevent or mitigate those impacts, using their ability to effect change in the behaviour or practices of suppliers as much as possible. The Guidelines also recommend that enterprises continually seek to improve the environmental performance of operations and, where appropriate, supply chains.
