About the webinar

 

Globally, Child labour cases have risen to 160 million – the first increase in two decades. Many measures to tackle child labour and related human rights issues have so far been largely voluntary – but the proposed European Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence signals that more mandatory measures are on their way.

 

This webinar will provide an update on child labour and child rights risks in supply chains, including an update on child labour legislation and due diligence requirements. It will present practical steps which companies can take to prevent and remediate child labour, strengthen child rights, and meet due diligence requirements.

 

The webinar is organised by ETI Sweden, Save the Children Sweden and The Centre for Child Rights & Business.
