On 30 May 2018, the OECD published the Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct. The Guidance is a tool aimed at giving practical support to companies on the implementation of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, explaining, with simple language, the recommendations contained in them on Due Diligence. The Guidance aims to provide companies with practical recommendations for responsible behaviour in order to identify, prevent, mitigate and explain how actual and potential negative impacts are addressed in relation to workers, human rights, the environment, corruption, consumers and corporate governance that may derive from their operations, supply chains and other business relationships. The Guidance also contains additional explanations, suggestions and illustrative examples of Due Diligence.
