Programme

09h30-18h30
 

 

Topics addressed:

Responsible business conduct developments in Spain

Participants will have the opportunity to hear presentations from and exchange with Spanish government and private sector speakers on developments in Spain in Corporate Responsibility, Anti-corruption and Business and Human Rights. These will include regulatory developments in the area, drivers for responsible business conduct, public-private collaborative approaches and the role of universities.

 

Corporate Responsibility

Companies are stepping up their actions to improve their performance with regard to the environment, labour and governance because it’s the right thing to do and because it is also good for business. Reporting can be one lever to increase sustainability and transparency. The commission will discuss ICC’s possible new actions in this area.

 

Conflicts of Interest

Managing conflicts of interest in both the public and private sectors has become a major governance issue worldwide. Identifying and resolving specific conflicts of interest can be challenging. ICC’s just released Guidelines provide recommendations to Enterprises on how to monitor and manage Conflicts of Interest facing their directors, officers, employees, and representatives. Members will discuss how best to deploy this guidance and if a second stage of this project should be undertaken.

 

Business and Human Rights

The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights are the standard in the field. ICC is guiding businesses on how to implement their responsibilities. Members will discuss challenges faced and solutions going forward.

 

G20/B20 Action on Anti-corruption, Integrity and Compliance

Members will be updated on ICC advocacy to G20 for policies on anti-corruption and on the status and next steps in the Business 20 process. The Commission will decide what priorities to convey in these processes.
