Child Labour Platform

Child Labour Platform (CLP), a win-win option for businesses and communities
Senior Officer for Corporate Social Responsibility in ILO-IPEC, explains why CLP’s tools are a win-win option for businesses and communities to address child labour.
In April 2012, the Child Labour Platform (CLP) was transferred to the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), co-chairs of the UN Global Compact Labour Working Group.

The CLP aims to identify the obstacles to the implementation of the ILO Conventions in supply chains and surrounding communities, identify practical ways of overcoming these obstacles, and catalyse collective action.
