FDI Qualities Indicators: Measuring The Sustainable Development Impacts of Investment
This report presents a new set of indicators that measure the sustainable development impacts of foreign direct investment (FDI) in host countries. The new metrics focus on five clusters derived from the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): productivity and innovation; employment and job quality; skills; gender equality; and, the carbon footprint. This study is an important element of the OECD Action Plan on the SDGs. It complements the OECD’s longstanding interest and expertise in shaping the policy environment to improve the social impact of private investment, including through the OECD Policy Framework for Investment and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
