The expectation that goods and services must be produced and supplied in a responsible manner, in accordance with international standards that guarantee respect for human rights, decent work and environmental protection, has increased significantly. At the same time, during the last decades the convergence of international standards on responsible business conduct (RBC), including corporate responsibility to respect human rights, has been observed. Governments, businesses and civil society in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) are also showing a greater interest in promoting responsible business conduct.
The "Responsible Business Conduct in Latin America and the Caribbean (RBCLAC)" project is implemented by the International Labor Organization (ILO), the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for human rights (OHCHR). This project is funded by and has been designed in collaboration with the European Union (EU).
