The Netherlands

The Dutch NAP makes some small references to the extractive sector.

3.1 An active role for the government

The OECD Guidelines Proactive Agenda [page 15]

“[the OECD] is also working with the various interested parties in the extractive sector on a guide to using stakeholder engagement in their CSR policies. … A multi-stakeholder approach to conflict minerals has proved highly successful in preventing funds being channelled into the civil war in the DCR.”

3.3 Clarifying due diligence

Raising companies’ awareness [page 22]

“It is essential for companies to have access to all available information on due diligence. The European Commission has published human rights guidance for three business sectors: ICT companies, oil and gas companies and employment and recruitment agencies.”
