Organised by: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ) The Employment Injury Scheme (EIS) Pilot addresses a crucial social need in Bangladesh: ensuring effective protection when work-related injuries occur in global supply chains. The EIS Pilot fulfills the fundamental workers’ right to a safe and healthy workplace, now included in most due diligence legislative trends. For more information visit EIS-PILOT (eis-pilot-bd.org). We invite you to join us to delve deeper into the EIS Pilot.
