Our work on business, human rights and labour addresses the business impacts on employees, communities, customers and supply chains. Through training and dialogues, we engage with Global Compact signatories in South Africa to respect, support and facilitate human rights and labour rights.
The work is also being expanded to focus and find solutions on broader social challenges and risks that affect South Africa’s society. These include issues around the slow pace of social and economic transformation, inequality, racism, xenophobia, exploitation of children and sexism.
This focus area is supported by a small working group, who are also members of the Local Network Advisory Committee.
