Child Labour Platform (CLP) and the Global Compact: Public-Private Partnership

The Child Labour Platform (CLP) is a thematic member-based workstream of the UN Global Compact’s Labour Working Group, open to companies committed to contributing to the effective elimination of child labour. It is also open to UN agencies, trade unions, business associations and other relevant stakeholders. The CLP builds on a previous initiative undertaken by the Dutch Government, the UN Global Compact and the Dutch Sustainable Trade Initiative aiming to enlist broader business commitment to the roadmap on the elimination of child labour adopted at the 2010 Global Child Labour Conference held in The Hague.
