CCR CSR's one-day “Child Labor Prevention and Remediation Training for Suppliers” equips suppliers of international brands with the tools and knowledge to cascade strong child labor prevention and remediation measures down their supply chains.

Why the need for training?

  • According to ILO, there were 62 million child laborers in Asia by 2016
  • Most child labor is found in lower tiers, which are opaque and unregulated
  • There is a strong need to prevent and remediate child labor in lower tiers
  • Companies are under increasing pressure to make their supply chains transparent and ensure their labor standards are implemented in lower tiers

Training objectives?

  • To fully understand the underlying causes of child labor and the negative impact on business and society
  • To strengthen knowledge on international standards, legal provisions and brand requirements
  • To learn best practices in prevention strategies and how to enforce these standards amongst their business partners (service providers, agents, sub-contractors, sub-suppliers)
  • To possess the know-how to carry out sustainable and beneficial remediation plans
  • To enable suppliers to train sub-contractors on child labor prevention and remediation
