IBR PRESENTATION AND WORKSHOP AT THE OECD 4TH ANNUAL WORKSHOP FOR PRACTITIONERS FROM FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS
On 7 February 2018, IBR will participate in an OECD workshop in Paris for practitioners from financial institutions, including Export Credit Agencies, development agencies and commercial banks, leading a session on how to implement Responsible Business Conduct in challenging environments.
During IBR’s two-hour workshop for some 40-60 practitioners, it will share its in-depth research on responsible business challenges in Iran and discuss how companies, financiers and investors can manage these challenges. The discussion will focus on migrant worker exploitation, responsible business due diligence, and occupational health and safety. IBR will also present its latest research on environmental and social impact assessments in Iran—providing guidance on where the regulatory framework, implementation and monitoring in Iran falls short of international standards. Finally, IBR will share the results of its exclusive poll measuring attitudes inside Iran towards responsible business that will be published later this month.
