Advancing evidence-based strategies with expert implementation support
To eradicate forced labour from the consumer goods sector and respect Workers’ rights, Coalition members are advancing the principles of responsible recruitment employment in their own operations and supply chains, exploring innovative solutions for remediation, and advocating for enabling policy environments that protect human rights.
In line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, Coalition members are committed to advancing human rights due diligence throughout consumer goods value chains. To start, they are focusing on their own operations, particularly those that are at high-risk for forced labour.
HRC members recognise the high potential for human rights abuses in their supply chains if they are purchasers of palm oil. Our People Positive Palm Project drives collaboration between consumer goods companies, palm oil suppliers, and other actors in Malaysia to eradicate forced labour from the Malaysian palm oil sector.
Eradicating forced labour is a task that no one person, company, or organisation can achieve by acting alone. The Coalition is committed to engaging with key stakeholders to best develop its approach and implement it with the greatest impact, building on the CGF’s rich history of cross-sector engagement on this issue.
