ICI/Nestlé “Tackling Child Labour” 2017 report
This report exploring the achievements, challenges and lessons from efforts to end child labour in cocoa was by Nestlé in October 2017, in partnership with the International Cocoa Initiative (ICI). Launched at the annual meeting of the ILO’s Child Labour Platform, the Tackling Child Labour 2017 report is a comprehensive account of one company’s actions to stamp out child labour in its cocoa supply chain.
The report particularly outlines the impact and potential of ICI’s innovative model for identifying and addressing child labour in the supply chain. Evaluations into this Child Labour Monitoring and Remediation System (CLMRS) have revealed its potential to reduce child labour by more than 50% over a three-year period.
