General Guidance

In recent years, innovative multi-stakeholder initiatives have developed new approaches and guidance in order to promote sustainable development and respect of human rights and, when relevant, international humanitarian law. Many of these focus on the extractives sector, although several others have a broader scope and apply to companies working in complex environments. This section compiles a selection of resources that provide general guidance for companies operating in complex environments. It also includes links to the websites of multi-stakeholder initiatives working on some of the challenges.
