Sustainable Enterprises - creating more and better jobs

Developing sustainable enterprises: the ILO approach

The ILO is the only UN body that brings together representatives of governments, employers and workers to jointly shape policies and programmes promoting sustainable enterprises. Drawing on the latest thinking on sustainable development, private sector promotion and good corporate citizenship, the ILO’s International Labour Conference in 2007 addressed the imperatives of sustainable development, fair globalization and the role of enterprises. In its Conclusions it set out a programme for and provided guidance on the promotion of sustainable enterprises.
