    Tripartite declaration of principles concerning multinational enterprises and social policy (MNE Declaration) - 5th Edition (March 2017)

    17 March 2017

    The MNE Declaration is the only ILO instrument that provides direct guidance to enterprises on social policy and inclusive, responsible and sustainable workplace practices. It is the only global instrument in this area that was elaborated and adopted by governments, employers and workers from around the world. It was adopted close to 40 years ago (amended in 2000 and 2006) and revised in 2017. Its principles are addressed to MNEs, governments, and employers’ and workers’ organizations and cover areas such as employment, training, conditions of work and life, and industrial relations as well as general policies. All principles build on international labour standards (ILO conventions and recommendations). The MNE Declaration facilitates outreach and understanding of the Decent Work Agenda in the private sector.
