The Global Forum on Responsible Business Conduct (GFRBC) is the annual flagship OECD event on RBC. Created in 2013 to debate the key global social and economic challenges related to RBC, the GFRBC has become the leading event for governments, businesses, trade unions and civil society to promote international dialogue on RBC and contribute to the effective implementation of the MNE Guidelines.

The GFRBC remains an important opportunity to engage with high-level economic
thinkers, industry thought-leaders as well as OECD members, and highlights the benefits of the multi-disciplinary approach to RBC led by the OECD Centre for RBC. The Forum positions the OECD as a strategic leader in defining what responsible business conduct means and how it can be scaled-up effectively.

This event is also an opportunity to raise public awareness of the unique global implementation mechanism on RBC launched by the OECD – National Contact Points for RBC (NCPs) – that support access to remedy on a global scale by providing a platform for mediation and conciliation. Since 2000, NCPs for RBC have handled more than 500 cases, addressing impacts from business operations in over 100 countries and territories, linked to alleged corporate, social, environmental, labour or human rights abuses. This process can lead to remedy for victims and bring about significant changes in corporate conduct, thereby contributing to the prevention of future harms.
