Conclusiones relativas a la promoción de empresas sostenibles - Conferencia Internacional del Trabajo, junio de 2007

The conclusions of this discussion provide an important contribution agreed by the ILO’s tripartite constituency of governments, employers’ and workers’ organizations on how to promote enterprise development in a manner that aligns enterprise growth with sustainable development objectives and the creation of productive employment and decent work.

As these conclusions show, the ILO is able to inject an essential impetus to the drive for an integrated approach to sustainable development because it is in workplaces that the social, economic and environmental dimensions come together inseparably. Furthermore, to ensure the progress of the Decent Work Agenda, it is necessary to situate it more clearly in a framework of sustainable development. The conclusions, arrived at through tripartite discussion, provide guidance on what is meant by an environment conducive to sustainable enterprises, on responsible and sustainable enterprise-level practices and on the roles of the Office and constituents in working iv towards making real the goal of sustainable development through the promotion of sustainable enterprises.
