Workers’ rights

 

In order to ensure that financial institutions are not linked to the exploitation of workers through their portfolios, it is essential that companies are required to provide proof that their business operations and supply chains meet key labour standards. Key labour standards include those laid out in IFC Performance Standard 2 and core ILO conventions on workers’ rights (http://www.ilo.org/wcmsp5/groups/public/—ed_norm/—relconf/documents/meetingdocument/wcms_176149.pdf)
