This session will focus on the development of a policy commitment and the identification of child labour risks and impacts.
- Develop a policy commitment & identify child labour risks and impacts – the view of the ILO/IOE Child Labour Guidance tool by Regula Meng from focusright

The new child labour due diligence obligation needs to be applied for the first time in 2023. It requires Swiss companies to evaluate if their goods and services might be linked to child labour. If a risk is identified, companies need to trace back their supply chain, identify and manage risks of adverse impacts and report annually about the measures taken.
The webinar series is open to all representatives of Swiss companies and especially targeted at company representatives that are in charge of Human Rights and Children’s Rights questions in their companies. Representatives from the following functions will mostly benefit from the webinars: sustainability, compliance, legal, procurement, human resources, human rights, children’s rights, reporting.
Fee: Free of charge for all

This webinar is organized in cooperation with the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO). It is part of measure 27 “Promote efforts to end all forms of child exploitation in supply chains” of the Swiss National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights 2020-2023.
