Strengthening Responsible Business Conduct through due diligence and alignment of SMEs



    The proposed project will scale up the alignment assessment of multi-stakeholder initiatives and individual companies and uptake of OECD Due Diligence Guidance. 

    Building on the ITC Standards Map database and online portal, the project will map relevant multi-stakeholder initiatives and the OECD Due Diligence Guidance on Responsible Supply Chains in Garment and Footwear sector. ITC will then develop an online customized application that facilitates the self-assessment of multi-stakeholder initiatives (MSIs) against the due diligence guidance and support the official alignment assessment process.

    ITC will leverage the existing database of Standards Map to map the multi-stakeholder initiatives and OECD due diligence guidance, and assist MSIs with regards to:

    • Data collection, maintenance, updates, and adaptations related to due diligence;
    • Self-assessment, review, and correspondence with OECD due diligence;
    • Application to official alignment assessment and uptake of due diligence by multi-stakeholder initiatives and individual companies.
