This high-level evaluation (HLE) provides insight into the relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability of the ILO’s work in promoting sustainable enterprises in the period 2014 to 2019. It also looks forward, identifying lessons learned that might inform the ongoing development of the organization’s strategy and approach, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. It covers the period 2014- 19 (biennia 2014-15, 2016-17; and 2018-19) and considers all efforts of the Office in promoting sustainable enterprises during this period. It concentrates on the work of the ILO’s ENTERPRISES Department, but since each of its units and programmes work closely with other ILO departments, these links are also explored. The evaluation reviewed strategic planning documents and reports, and analysed implementation and results, including Country Programme Outcomes (CPOs), global products, programmes and projects that contribute to the outcome, and the resource applied. 1 The evaluation covered the period 2014–19.
