Key aims for the action plan are the legislative support, definition of the due diligence obligation, and the application of social criteria in public procurement. Encourage companies to publish the non-financial data on the social and environmental impact of their activities. The Ministry of Employment and the Economy and the Ministry of Environment are involved in organizing the annual competition for reporting on CSR. International information on the content of companies’ responsibility reports is available in a database maintained by GRI. The Finnish corporate responsibility network FIBS acts as a partner of GRI to register responsibility reports. The document includes a clear reference to OECD guidelines.
