Child Labour Monitoring
Child labour monitoring and remediation is set to be rolled out across our operations in Cameroon, in the first programme of its kind by a cocoa company.
In addition to complying with all relevant laws and international agreements in our own operations, many of our supply chains are in emerging markets across highly rural areas, and can involve intermediaries and other third-parties, which makes eradicating labour issues much more complex.
Training on safe working practices and information on labour rights
Promotion of formalised labour contracts
Rollout of the Olam Supplier Code
Child labour monitoring and remediation
And a grievance communications mechanism
Compliance and reporting on our health, safety, and working conditions as stated in the Olam Fair Employment Policy
We report on the goals and targets in the Human and Social Capital sections of our 2020 Annual Report. Updates include:
Progress against our Fair Employment Policy roadmap
Progress against our campaign for “An Even Safer Olam”
How we’re tackling child labour
We encourage conversation and aim to build connections with those that share our passion for sustainability.
