Evaluation of Dutch IRBC Policy – India Report


Katrine Danielsen, Verena Bitzer

This report is the result of a case study conducted in India as part of the evaluation of Dutch policy on International Responsible Business Conduct (IRBC) by the Policy and Operations Evaluation Department (IOB) of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).

The India study aimed to evaluate how different Dutch IRBC policy instruments manifest in India and how they influence (Dutch) companies to contribute positively to economic, environmental and social progress while minimising adverse effects. Concerning IRBC policy instruments, the study covers ‘international cooperation and legislation’, ‘Embassy activities’ and ‘sector agreements’. For ‘sector agreements’, we examined the Dutch Agreement on Sustainable Garments and Textile as the primary case and the pending natural stone sector agreement as the secondary case.
