ENDING CORPORATE GREED
TO DELIVER ON DUE DILIGENCE,
PROTECTING SUPPLY CHAIN WORKERS
Millions of workers are being laid off in the supply chains, bearing the costs of the Covid-19 crisis. Where global contracts with different suppliers are not upheld, a massive human cost arises, hugely delaying recovery. This is not the way towards resilient and inclusive global markets.
Corporate bailouts using public funds must require companies to deliver on due diligence: paying a living wage, providing social protection, respecting workers’ freedom of association and right to collective bargaining, and reducing their carbon footprint. The current business model is not sustainable and must change.
