It was adopted close to 40 years ago (and amended twice in 2000 and 2006) but its aims remain highly relevant in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Its principles are addressed to MNEs, governments, and employers’ and workers’ organizations and cover areas such as employment, training, conditions of work and life, and industrial relations as well as general policies. All principles build on international labour standards (ILO conventions and recommendations). The MNE Declaration facilitates outreach and understanding of the Decent Work Agenda in the private sector, as highlighted in the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization.
