A special event during this week’s UN Global Compact Leaders Summit in New York will offer companies and other stakeholders the opportunity to learn more about the Child Labour Platform (CLP). The CLP - a joint initiative by the ILO, the International Trade Union Confederation, the International Organization of Employers and the UNGC - identifies obstacles to the implementation of ILO Conventions in supply chains and the surrounding communities, as well as solutions to these obstacles and ways to catalyse collective action. Benjamin Smith, the ILO-IPEC’s Senior Officer for Corporative Social Responsibility, explains why CLP’s tools are a winning solution for businesses, working families and communities to address child labour.
