The COVID-19 crisis has dramatically disrupted business and exposed major vulnerabilities in the economy and global supply chains. The first part of the Forum gathered thought leaders from government and business, trade unions, civil society, academia and international organisations to discuss how RBC can build value and more resilient supply chains in a post-COVID-19 world.
Sessions discussed a variety of themes including the promotion of business responsibility in a post-COVID-19 world; the role of RBC in government support and recovery packages and how innovative engagement across stakeholders can promote responsible and resilient supply chains.
The virtual event is the 2nd part of the 2020 OECD Global Forum on Responsible Business Conduct.

- 19 May 2020 - PART 1: RBC and COVID-19
This event focused on how governments and businesses can use a responsible business conduct (RBC) approach to address the COVID-19 crisis and build more resilient supply chains. The Global Forum has become the leading event for governments, businesses, trade unions and civil society to promote international dialogue on RBC and contribute to the effective implementation of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. This year we will bring together stakeholders from business, trade unions, civil society and academia to discuss key social, economic and environmental challenges related to RBC including ways in which we can use the ongoing pandemic to integrate responsible business thinking into policies and action to bring remedy to people, meet the Sustainable Development Goals and tackle climate change.
