SUPPORT FOR CONSUMER GOODS FORUM PRIORITY PRINCIPLES ON FORCED LABOR

April 18, 12:34 PM

In early 2016 the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) adopted a resolution recognising the issue of forced labor as "one of the most pressing social issues of our times"  and pledging to strive to eradicate it from the industry's value chains.

 

This resolution has now been followed up with 3 priority principles to counter problematic employment practices: 

  1. Every worker should have freedom of movement
  2. No worker should pay for a job
  3. No worker should be indebted or coerced to work.

AIM-PROGRESS has many members in common with the CGF and we have contributed to the crafting of the priority principles. We are fully supportive of the resolution and the priority principles. The role of AIM-PROGRESS will be to help publicise and implement the principles in our supply chains.

 

AIM-PROGRESS will be present at the IHRB’s Annual Leadership Forum on Responsible Recruitment on 19 June in Berlin, followed by a CGF event on Partnerships to end force labor in supply chains on 20 June.
