Insights into business interventions to tackle child labour in supply chains

More articles

Are you an entrepreneur, and is your company doing business in developing countries? Are you taking steps to show Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)? Then you might discover child labour occurs in your value chain after conducting a risk analysis. Join this seminar to learn what your company can do to prevent and tackle child labour. 

Why take part?

This seminar reviews various interventions to prevent or reduce child labour in your value chains. We share experiences and lessons learnt from Fund against Child Labour (FBK) projects. With this information, we aim to help companies and stakeholders choose and develop important interventions to tackle child labour in international supply chains.  

What is child labour?

According to the International Labour Organization, child labour is "work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development".

Ending child labour starts with recognising it exists. Business owners can no longer assume there is no child labour in their chains. When business owners notice signs of child labour, they should start a dialogue with their chain partners to look for ways to end child labour together.
