The Scale of the Net Zero Challenge

The price of meeting net zero is estimated to be between $100-150 trillion over the next 30 years. Regardless of this cost, we need to reach net zero before climate change does irreversible damage to the environment and the economy.

ESG, Sustainability and Impact Jargon Buster

ESG, sustainability, impact… they all just mean green, right? Not quite. Despite being used often interchangeably, there are distinct differences between these terms.

The Challenges for Supply Chains (Danske)

7 mins 45 secs

Key learning objectives:

  • Identify examples of supply chain abuse

  • Understand the the consequences of supply chain abuse

Overview:

Poor working conditions in suppliers are not just "how things are there". We have seen many examples of human rights abuse in supply chains worldwide - from vegetable pickers in the UK to the murder of union leader's in Cambodia. There have been consequences for many companies, such as lawsuits against chocolate companies for child labour and a construction company for the slavery of foreign contract workers.

Summary
What are some examples and consequences of supply chain abuse?

1. 1200 workers dying from the collapse of the Rana Plaza factory building in Bangladesh. These factories were in the supply chains of Primark, Benetton, Bon Marche, The Children's Place, El Corte Inglés, Joe Fresh, Kik Germany, Mango, Matalan, Walmart and other retailers.

2. Lawsuits against chocolate companies Nestle, Mars and Hershey regarding forced child labour, which the cocoa industry has failed to solve. This is despite committing to it 20 years ago and making billions in profits. 

3. Hy Vuthy, the president of the Free Trade Union of Workers for a Cambodia garment factory Suntex, was shot dead after speaking up for improvements for workers. At the time, the factory exported for GAP, Walmart, Target, Loblaw, Coles and other brands.
