ILO holds webinar on "Eradicating Forced Labour from Global Supply Chains"
( ILO) - Last week ILO held its first webinar on "Eradicating Forced Labour from Global Supply Chains." Over 70 persons, including CSR Specialists, managers, researchers and investors participated in the webinar. Between social responsibility and compliance due to legislation, businesses are becoming more interested in the elimination of forced labour within their supply chains.
From the Special Action Programme to combat forced labour, Beate Andrees and Aurélie Hauchère Vuong, gave practical guidance for business to identify, prevent and eliminate forced labour and trafficking along supply chains, including contractors and suppliers, providing some good examples of corporate initiatives around the world. After their presentation, they answered questions from registered participants.
The webinar is part of a series of joint webinars with the Global Compact, through which the ILO is providing technical support on Labour Standards and Principles to Global Compact participants. The ILO Helpdesk for Business will offer further follow-up for companies with more questions as well as direct access to the specific tools on the topic that were covered during the webinar.
