They cover a range of issues such as labour and human rights, bribery and corruption, environment and information disclosure. Though voluntary for companies, governments that have endorsed the Guidelines are essentially conveying that they expect multinational companies to follow these principles and standards of good conduct in their operations worldwide. In 2000, as part of the most recent revision of the Guidelines, a new complaint procedure was agreed upon that allows non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to submit complaints concerning alleged breaches of the Guidelines to a government's National Contact Point (NCP)Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

by Wiesel, Ilan | Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute | Davison, Gethin | Milligan, Vivienne.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute 2012Description: PDF.Other title: Developing sustainable affordable housing : a project level.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Project Number: 70617 February 2012Summary: Governments across Australia are increasingly turning to not-for-profit housing providers to help address shortages in housing that is affordable to low and moderate income households. However, an important question is whether, in the quest to provide affordability, these new developments sacrifice social, financial or environmental sustainability. Eight Australian not-for-profit housing developments were analysed in this project. The study utilised a range of methods including interviews with not-for-profit providers, site visits, and surveys and focus groups with residents of those developments. The study found that affordability for tenants generally lay on a range between that found in public housing and the private market. However, those providers with heavier debt financing obligations were least able to house lower-income households affordably.Availability: (1)
