In June 2007, the International Labour Conference (ILC) discussed the promotion of sustainable enterprises calling for the strengthening of the institutions and governance systems that nurture enterprises. Strong and efficient markets need strong and effective institutions. Promoting sustainable enterprises is about sustainable development where economic, social and environmental outcomes are pursued, and where human, financial and natural resources are combined equitably and efficiently in order to achieve innovation and enhanced productivity. The assessment described in this report is based on secondary data, a literature review, and interviews with some private companies and technical inputs provided by representatives of tripartite stakeholders. It also takes into account the results of a perceptions survey conducted in Guyana, inJuly‐ September 2017.
