Sucafina has announced it has joined the International Labour Organisation’s Child Labour Platform (ILO CLP). The CLP hopes to bring together businesses, governments, civil society organisations and other stakeholders to share knowledge and best practises in order to coordinate collective action in eliminating child labour.

“Joining the Child Labour Platform is an important step toward strengthening Sucafina’s efforts to identify child labour risks in our supply chain,” says Sucafina Global CSR Manager Catherine Rehbinder. ‘As a member, we will benefit from the expertise and knowledge of the ILO and make a greater impact by coordinating efforts and resources and collaborating on projects to tackle child labour.”

The CLP currently has 24 member companies across multiple industries. The platform has numerous programs and working groups in countries where collaborations with NGO’s and governments are already established, including Sucafina’s origin countries such as India, Ivory Coast, Uganda, and Vietnam.

“Addressing human rights issues, including those concerning the rights of children, is one of the biggest and most complex challenges facing the coffee industry today,” says Sucafina Head of Sustainability Justin Archer. “It requires constant effort, a commitment to continuous learning, and cooperation among different stakeholders.”

“Joining the ILO Child Labour Platform gives Sucafina the opportunity to partner with others to make real progress in tackling the root causes of child labour.”
