2015 OECD Global Forum on Responsible Business Conduct
Only by working
together can we
ensure that
responsible business
conduct is part of the
DNA of doing
business globally.
Angel Gurría
OECD Secrétary-General
“
“
The urgency is
clear for responsible
business conduct.
The last generation
that can save the
planet is already
born.
Roel Nieuwenkamp
Chair of the OECD Working Party on
Responsible Business Conduct
“
“
We are committed
to RBC at the highest
possible level, and
President Obama
himself called for us
to put in place the
National Action Plan,
where will be working
with all stakeholder
to unify and
coordinate this
process.
Charles Rivkin
Assistant Secretary of State for
Economic and Business Affairs,
United States
“
“
We all have our
share of responsibility
and thus we have to
act jointly in order to
manage globalisation
in a comprehensive
way.
Thomas Silberhorn
State Secretary to the Federal Minister
for Economic Cooperation and
Development, Germany
“
“
Overall we should be
leading a process of
convergence. A new vision
[for responsible business
conduct] should integrate the
work of the OECD and the
agreements on sustainable
development and climate
change to be agreed upon
this year.
Richard Howitt
European Parliament Rapporteur on
Corporate Social Responsibility
“
“
Business people should
step out of their jobs and
think about the human
being that they are, the
families they belong to
and bring that back into
the decision making. That
is when we are bringing
responsible back to
business.
Amina Mohammed
UN Secretary-General Special Adviser
on Post-2015 Development Planning
“
“
We have to find a
merging point together
with civil society and
other stakeholders to
ensure that global
policies for responsible
business conduct
permeate down to the
people who will catch its
essence and blend it into
community to practice.
Shun-ichi Murata
Deputy Executive Secretary, UN
Economic and Social Commission
for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP)
“
“
If you want to be
a business leader,
you better integrate
sustainability in
everything you do.
Peter Bakker
President and CEO, World
Business Council for
Sustainable Development
(or “Why don’t we re-write
responsible business conduct to
cover the reality of business today:
it’s not about avoiding doing bad
it’s about driving being good,
implementing solutions for global
challenges.”)

“
We need transparency, we
need to strengthen soft law -
which is the OECD
Guidelines, they’re the best
tools we have and they’re
based on the international
rule of law – and we need
the consequence: the NCPs
armed with consequence to
be the moderators and
conciliators, and in addition
we need the grievance
procedure in every country
and at every level.
Sharan Burrow
General Secretary, International
Trade Union Confederation
“
“
We have to have
businesses acting responsibly
if we are to enjoy quality of
life and if we are to have
people thriving around the
world, and we need
[businesses] to do it in a way
that allows all the people
affected by their operations
to thrive, and that allows
nature to thrive.
David Nussbaum
Chief Executive, WWF-UK
