The Dutch government expects internationally operating companies to implement corporate social responsibility (CSR). The basic principles in this context are the OECD guidelines for multinational enterprises. This involves you assessing which CSR risks one is likely to encounter in their business activities, such as during procurement/imports, in their production abroad, or when exporting their products. Risks may occur in relation to working conditions, the environment and corruption, for instance. Besides seeking risk transparency, one is expected to take measures to mitigate the risks they have identified. The CSR Risk Check is a useful CSR risk assessment tool, giving individuals an overview of the issues they may encounter in their organisation or company, including earlier on in the production chain. The risk check is easy to use and will instantly give individuals a list of possible issues for each country and/or product in the form of a risk assessment. The CSR Risk Check is developed and owned by MVO Nederland.

The Tool

The CSR Risk Check is aimed at entrepreneurs who purchase internationally produced products, export products or produce abroad.

The company: 
– purchases products or services through a agent or directly from a manufacturer or supplier, and/or 
– exports products or services, and/or 
– produces or offers services abroad (or invests in production locations abroad). 

After taking this brief test, one will know which international CSR risks their trade activities carry and what they can do to mitigate these risks.
