Empowering Responsibility: The State Department’s 2024 National Action Plan on Responsible Business Conduct Promotes Green Energy, Human Rights, and Equality

The State Department has recently released its 2024 National Action Plan on Responsible Business Conduct, highlighting the government’s commitment to promoting green energy, upholding human and labor rights, combating corruption, using technology that respects human rights, defending human rights advocates, and advancing gender equality and equity.

The second national action plan focuses on four key areas: establishing a federal advisory committee on responsible business conduct, enhancing human rights compliance in federal procurement policies, improving access to remedies for victims of abuses by businesses, and providing resources to businesses.

In the first priority area, the State Department aims to collaborate with private sector stakeholders by utilizing a federal advisory committee on responsible business conduct. The second priority focus area involves the Department of Defense reviewing potential requirements or incentives for membership in the International Code of Conduct Association for Private Security Providers by vendors.

The plan emphasizes the importance of businesses conducting comprehensive human rights due diligence throughout their value chains in accordance with international standards. This approach aims to promote responsible business conduct and create a more ethical and sustainable business environment.
