U.S. National Action Plan

On September 24, 2014, President Obama announced a new initiative, the U. S. National Action Plan on Responsible Business Conduct.  The President stated that “as part of our leadership in the global fight against corruption, we intend to partner with American businesses to develop a national plan to encourage responsible and transparent business conduct overseas.”  This new initiative will promote responsible business conduct, consistent with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. The National Action Plan is part of the U.S. government’s continued commitment to open government principles, as promoted through the Open Government Partnership. By encouraging increased transparency and cooperation among multiple stakeholders from business and civil society, the National Action Plan will address a host of issues related to responsible business conduct, including human rights, labor rights, trade and investment, transparency and anti-corruption, procurement, and land and agriculture.

"In addition, as part of our leadership in the global fight against corruption, we intend to partner with American businesses to develop a national plan to promote responsible and transparent business conduct overseas." -- President Barack Obama
