About the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment and Footwear Sector

A common denominator of the discussions at the Forum is the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment and Footwear Sector (OECD Garment Guidance). The Garment Guidance establishes a common understanding of due diligence in the sector to help companies meet expectations on due diligence laid out in the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises (OECD MNE Guidelines). Since its adoption in 2017, the OECD Garment Guidance has become accepted as the landmark framework for due diligence in the sector, supported by 50 governments, aligned with OECD, UN and ILO instruments, and negotiated with business, trade unions and civil society. It provides ambitious but pragmatic guidance to all companies - large and small - operating in global garment and footwear supply chains, to prevent and address the negative impacts of their activities and contribute to sustainable development.
