DFID will provide £26.8m from July 2014 to March 2019 to help multinational and local businesses manage the social and environmental implications of their actions, and be accountable for the consequences for poor workers and communities who may be affected by them. This programme will engage with partners across a range of responsible business approaches, such as voluntary standards, company reporting, and human rights and gender impact assessments, in order to improve enterprises’ social and environmental risk management, and their accountability, transparency and openness to participation. In particular, the programme will work with the private sector to implement a mix of influencing and international coordination initiatives which tackle the root causes of modern slavery and child labour and support its victims.
