Christine Kaufmann, Chair of the Working Party for Responsible Business conduct, WPRBC, is clear when emphasizing that responsible business conduct is not a goal in itself, but rather a means to an end.  – That end is  very clear and simple, it’s improving people’s life on the ground, she says.
Guidelines are common ground rules to prevent negative impacts on human rights, labour rights, the environment, corruption and several other important issues, says Frode Elgesem, the Chair of the Norwegian NCP.
