The Buyer Code

The Buyer Code cover

The Buyer Code provides model language for setting out the steps that purchasers can take towards supporting positive human rights outcomes. It promotes the shared-responsibility approach of the UNGPs and the OECD Guidance on Due Diligence for Responsible Business Conduct, and articulates detailed standards that fall under six categories: institutional commitments; selecting suppliers; negotiating the contract; performing and renewing the contract; remediation for human rights harms; and disengagement and responsible exit.
