OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector

Strengthening due diligence in China: A new methodology towards transparent supply chains

Feb 23, 2024 | 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM


Organised by: SOMO and China Labour Bulletin (CLB) Research has shown that workers in China’s garment export sector face regular and often systemic violations of their labour rights, including unpaid wages and non-payment of social security benefits. Connecting workers and workplaces with international companies sourcing from China can catalyse effective action by the companies when it comes to promoting respect for workers’ rights. SOMO and China Labour Bulletin (CLB) brought together their expertise to develop a research methodology that generates new data on the supply chains of the garment sector in China. In the session SOMO and CLB will present their findings and discuss how robust due diligence can enhance protection for the rights of Chinese workers in international supply chains.
