OECD Watch is an international network of civil society organisations promoting corporate accountability. The purpose of OECD Watch is to inform the wider NGO community about policies and activities of the OECD's Investment Committee and to test the effectiveness of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
40th anniversary of the OECD Guidelines
On 5 November, the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding officially launched its brochure ‘International Standards for responsible business in conflict-affected and fragile environments’.
Allegations of corporate wrongdoing lodged under the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises over the past 15 years almost never resulted in companies being held accountable, OECD Watch's new analysis of cases has found.
The June 2015 update of new cases filed, pending and recently concluded or rejected cases, and current case statistics is now available.
OECD Watch and Equitable Cambodia are pleased to invite you to the public seminar Promoting Responsible Corporate Conduct in the Greater Mekong region: Using the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises as a tool for corporate accountability, held 8 May 2015 in Phnom Penh.
Norwegian civil society organisations are disappointed that the Norwegian government decided not to renew Professor Hans Petter Graver’s mandate as head of the Norwegian National Contact Point (NCP) for the OECD Guidelines. Norwegian civil society organisations believe this decision involves a serious deterioration of the NCP’s independence and is a result of Professor Graver’s criticism of the Norges Bank Investment Management ‘s (NBIM) poor handling of human rights violations by the companies they invest in.
