Child Labour Due Diligence in the Labour Intensive Industries

The challenges in addressing Child Labour in complex supply chains remains of paramount importance.Given the slow but steady global progress on addressing Child Labour as well as the vulnerability of these stakeholders to psychological, physical and even sexual harm, the issue continues to be of concern for the responsible investment communities. Vigeo has produced this sustainability focus to draw attention specifically to how companies in the Mining, Food, Tobacco and Specialised Retail sectors  are seeking to address this challenge. This sustainability focus considers the challenges of diffusing policies, the risks for companies, includes case studies and good practice examples whilst considering ways to minimize Child Labour risks by implementing due diligence measures.
