Exploitation & Global Supply Chains

Millions of men, women and children work in inhumane conditions as part of global supply chains. They are paid less than a living wage and mistreated at work, where fatal factory accidents are all too common. Companies from the Global North exacerbate working conditions through their pricing and deadline demands. Certification processes and voluntary standards have proven to be ineffective in terms of bringing about improvements. ECCHR therefore uses a range of legal tools to ensure that transnational contractors, buyers and retailers are held responsible for the exploitation of workers.
