Tervehdys Suomen Shanghain pääkonsulaatista.

Toimitamme ohessa tiedoksenne OECD:n päivitetyt toimintaohjeet monikansallisille yrityksille. Ohjeet sisältävät suosituksia monikansallisille yrityksille, jotka toimivat toimintaohjeet hyväksyneissä valtioissa tai niistä käsin. Ohjeissa esitetään vapaaehtoisuuteen perustuvat periaatteet ja normit vastuulliselle liiketoiminnalle kansainvälisessä ympäristössä.

Toimintaohjeiden suositukset ilmaisevat niiden valtioiden yhteisiä arvoja, joista on peräisin merkittävä osa suoria kansainvälisiä investointeja ja joissa sijaitsevat useat suuret monikansalliset yritykset. Toimintaohjeiden tavoitteena on edistää yritysten panosta taloudellisen, ekologisen ja sosiaalisen kehityksen puolesta kaikkialla maailmassa.

OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises

Published Thu / April 10 / 2014

The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises (please see the attachment) are recommendations addressed by governments to multinational enterprises operating in or from adhering countries. They provide non-binding principles and standards for responsible business conduct in a global context consistent with applicable laws  and internationally recognized standards. The Guidelines are the only multilaterally agreed and comprehensive code of responsible business conduct that governments have committed to promoting.

The Guidelines' recommendations express the shared values of the governments of countries from which a large share of international direct investment originates and which are home to many of the largest multinational enterprises. The Guidelines aim to promote positive contributions by enterprises to economic, environmental and social progress worldwide. The Guidelines are supported by a unique implementation mechanism of National Contact Points (NCPs), agencies established by adhering governments to promote and implement the Guidelines. The NCPs assist enterprises and their stakeholders to take appropriate measures to further the implementation of the Guidelines. They also provide a mediation and conciliation platform for  resolving practical issues that may arise.
