A broad coalition of solar and wind energy companies, industry associations, the Dutch government, knowledge institutions, NGOs and trade unions committed themselves to the Agreement.

Through the Agreement, the companies shall commit to implementing the ‘OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises’ and the ‘United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights’ (UNGPs) in their operations and throughout their supply chains. The other participants in the agreement shall commit to specific actions to foster and monitor the actions of the companies. Collectively, all the participants in the process shall explore, identify and address the risks and impacts for people and the environment in the operations and supply chains of the renewable energy sector. The multi-stakeholder collaboration aims to offer shared solutions to address problems that companies cannot solve entirely by themselves.
