Child Labour Platform (CLP)

Child Labour Platform (CLP), a win-win option for businesses and communities
Mr. Yann Wyss, Senior Manager, Social & Environmental Impact at Nestlé, interviewed during the 2016 meeting of the Child Labour Platform, explains the benefits of sharing experiences and joining forces to eradicate child labour in supply chains.
In April 2012, the Child Labour Platform (CLP) was transferred to the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), co-chairs of the UN Global Compact Labour Working Group.

The CLP aims to identify the obstacles to the implementation of the ILO Conventions in supply chains and surrounding communities, identify practical ways of overcoming these obstacles, and catalyse collective action.
