How Home Governments Can Incentivise Responsible Business Conduct of Extractive Companies Operating Abroad: Innovative New Approaches

This Report is the fourth in a series reviewing measures that home governments can use to incentivise responsible business conduct (RBC) and disincentivise irresponsible conduct of extractive companies operating abroad. It reviews how a selection of countries in the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) - and BRICS - and the European Union (EU) have developed different approaches to incentivise responsible business conduct by extractive companies operating abroad and disincentivise conduct that undermines environmental, social, human rights and good governance standards. Highlighting these measures is intended to prompt reflection among home states on further tools to implement policy commitments to responsible business conduct and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UN Guiding Principles) more explicitly.
