The Proactive Agenda complements the specific instance procedure by helping enterprises identify and respond to risks of adverse impacts associated with particular products, regions, sectors or industries.
Central to its potential to effect change on a broad scale is its employment of the multi-stakeholder process which gives stakeholders the opportunity to participate side-by-side with enterprises in developing strategies to avoid risks of adverse impacts. Proactive agenda work should add value and avoid duplication with other initiatives and collaborative efforts. Nonetheless, it has no intention to extend the scope of Guidelines with new responsibilities or recommendations.
