Engaging - tackling the challenge together
Often, non-compliance to labour rights is linked to political, economical or cultural issues that affect not only individual workplaces but also entire sectors and countries. To find sustainable solutions to those challenges, BSCI works closely with a wide range of stakeholders such as governments, trade unions, NGOs, business associations, buyers and suppliers. In order to maximise our impact we employ various channels, such as dialogues, partnerships and joint capacity building efforts.
- In sourcing countries, such as China, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Turkey and others, BSCI initiates and supports regular Round Tables on labour conditions. The Round Tables provide a forum for discussion between local stakeholders on how they can work together to improve working conditions and ensure local ownership of the issue.
- At international level, we initiate discussions and join forces with various stakeholders, such as initiatives aiming to improve social compliance. This approach allows us and our partners to scale up existing initiatives, create synergies, avoid overlap and increase impact.
- In various European countries, National Contact Groups offer a platform for BSCI participants to come together and learn from each other’s experiences. National Contact Groups reach out to stakeholders in their country to exchange views and share expertise on responsible supply chain management.
- At institutional level, our Stakeholder Council provides us with guidance on key challenges and trends. The governance is made up of representatives from trade unions, NGOs, policy makers and business associations, the Stakeholder Council initiates, approves and advises on policies to ensure and strengthen BSCI’s ongoing contribution to better working conditions.
