[PDF] OECD Council Draft Revised Recommendation on Officially Supported Export Credits and Environmental and Social Sustainability: Submission of International Co-ordinating Committee of National Institutions for the Promotion and Protection of Human...

OECD Council Recommendation on Common Approaches on Officially Supported Export Credits and Environmental and Social Sustainability...The 2011 proposed revision’s suggested amendments for explicit inclusion of references to social risks and impacts, including human rights impacts of the Common Approaches represent an advance on the current 2007 version of the Recommendation.
