The difference the Dutch Banking Sector Agreement is making

Building on the key issues mapped out in the UN GPs and OECD GL, we initially established five working groups, focused on what all parties agree are priority areas. As reported last year, the Human Rights Matrix/Database group was dissolved, as much of the information meant to be captured in the matrix was already available to banks. This allowed a sharper focus on the four remaining working groups: Value Chain, Enabling Remediation, Increasing Leverage and Transparency. We discuss the progress made by each below.
