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'.
