#28 Allan Jorgensen: What the OECD Guidelines update means for responsible business Frankly Speaking - A Podcast on Responsible Business

    • Business

Frankly Speaking discusses this week the recent update of the OECD Guidelines on multinational enterprises with Allan Jorgensen, Head of the OECD Centre for Responsible Business Conduct since 2021. He was previously Head of Sustainable Trade for Danish logistics company A.P. Moller-Maersk. Prior to that, Allan served in the public sector as Director of Human Rights and Business at the Danish Institute for Human Rights.

The guidelines are the world's principal soft law instrument on responsible business. The OECD describes them as the "most comprehensive international standard on responsible business conduct". They are the only one which is multilaterally negotiated, endorsed by governments and having the unique system to hear complaints known as specific instances, The National Contact Points or NCPs.

You will hear more about: 


What differentiates the OECD Guidelines from other global tools and instruments.
The major changes on environment and climate change introduced in the guidelines since their last review in 2011.
How the guidelines are a comprehensive tool for businesses to take ownership of their value chain and potential and actual adverse impacts.
How responsible business conduct policy transitions from pioneer to mainstream.
