Realising the SDGs: The Role of Responsible Business

This four-year research project, funded by the Danida Research Council, explores how responsible business initiatives support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in developing countries, particularly Kenya and Ghana.

The research project will in particular look at the process of human rights due diligence outlined in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and aligned standards such as the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

The project’s main objective is to facilitate better informed decision-making regarding policy instruments to promote responsible business conduct and UNGPs operationalisation, and thereby realisation of SDG 8 and SDG 16 and compliance with ILO Core Labour Standards.

Focus Areas

Research will be undertaken in Ghana and Kenya on three different types of responsible business initiatives:

  1. National action plans.
  2. Non-judicial grievance mechanisms.
  3. Sector-specific responsible value chain initiatives.
