More information

Launched by the Danish Government, the Action Plan aims to provide guidance on creating shared value for business and society through innovative partnerships between the private and public sectors and civil society. It also lays out a plan to strengthen accountability though the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles and transparency requirements. In addition to the reporting requirements in place since 2009, new requirements entail disclosure on whether a company has policies to ensure respect for human rights and/or to reduce its climate impact. This is the second Action Plan for CSR, the first being launched in 2008 by the former government.
