Promoting and enabling responsible business conduct as a strategic choice in Cambodia

This chapter considers how Cambodia could promote and enable responsible business conduct (RBC) as a strategic choice by mainstreaming RBC at a government level and clearly communicating RBC priorities and expectations. The chapter traces Cambodia’s success in the garment sector to the steps taken to promote safe sourcing beginning in the 1990s and looks at the growing importance of RBC within global supply chains. It also considers how multi-stakeholder consultations could be expanded and suggests that Cambodia could consider a National Action Plan for RBC.
