More articles

Is your company or organisation looking for innovative solutions or do you have valuable insights to tackle child labour in a supply chain or on country-level? Or do you want to engage in a constructive dialogue about practical solutions which help address challenges to end child labour by 2025? Then please join our international meeting 'Taking next steps to end child labour in global supply chains' on 27 and 28 January 2020 in Leiden, the Netherlands.

Sustainable Development Goal 8.7

We know that 152 million children are still victims of child labour. The Dutch government has committed itself to SDG 8.7: the elimination of child labour by 2025.

End child labour

In today's global supply chains, we struggle knowing where our products are made or under which circumstances raw materials are sourced. We strongly believe that child labour is everybody's responsibility. As consumers, sourcing or producing companies, governments, NGOs and communities, we all have our responsibilities towards these children.
