The OECD-FAO Guidance for Responsible Agricultural Supply Chains was published in 2016 with a view to helping enterprises observe existing standards for responsible business conduct in agricultural supply chains. The Guidance helps enterprises observe standards of responsible business conduct to ensure that their operations do not lead to adverse impacts and contribute to sustainable development. The OECD-FAO Guidance targets domestic and international, small, medium and large enterprises across the entire agricultural supply chain, from the farm to the consumer. Enterprises involved in agricultural supply chains can create employment, raise labour standards and bring the technology to increase agricultural production or reduce pollution. But their activities can also contribute to food insecurity.
