Covid-19 has increased the risk of rising child and forced labour due to its impact on employment, insufficient social protection and weak systems for labour inspection. The pandemic is posing challenges for business to conduct human rights due diligence in their supply chains. With travel largely suspended, companies have been unable to visit suppliers and conduct on-site audits. Learn about strategies on how businesses can navigate these challenges, how to address flaws of existing due diligence tools and how innovation and digital means can assist companies with pursuing due diligence in their supply chain management.
