New Global Deal publication: Social dialogue facilitated through National Contact Points for responsible business conduct

The OECD, one of the founding partners of the Global Deal, has developed the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. The Guidelines are recommendations on responsible business conduct that provide non-binding principles and standards for corporate responsibility in a global context and they are consistent with applicable laws and internationally recognised standards. Social dialogue is embedded in the Guidelines, and the provisions explicitly require companies to consult with social partners as part of their due diligence processes.
