OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector

Addressing climate adaptation needs through due diligence

Feb 21, 2024 | 10:45 AM - 12:00 PM

Room CC9


A growing number of garment and footwear companies have made commitments to net zero by the mid-century in response to growing awareness about the key role industry sectors have to play to combat climate change. However, climate change is already negatively impacting workers and communities around key production hubs and agricultural regions relevant for the sector, with water availability, worker safety, and business continuity all in question. This panel will explore what garment and footwear companies can do to increase their adaptation engagement, drawing from the OECD Due Diligence Guidance and MNE Guidelines. Interpretation is available in French.
