ROADMAP TO get started with due diligence

Customers, governments and civil society organisations expect companies to do business with respect for people and planet. Internationally this is laid down in the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. Companies are required to identify, prevent and reduce csr risks in their supply chain, both upstream and downstream. This is also called 'due diligence' or 'csr risk management'.

To meet the upcoming due diligence legislation, you integrate it throughout your organisation: your management systems, policies, and procedures. And that is not easy. That is why in this 'Getting started with due diligence' MVO Netherlands lays out how to approach due diligence step by step.
