Decent Work in Global Supply Chains


1 comment

My name is Mariana and I work as Social Development Specialist in a European Multilateral Financial Institution with an annual lending of some EUR 70 billion.

I am responsible for ensuring that the projects my organisation finances comply with our social standards, including labour standards and health, safety and security conditions for workers. In addition, I also work in policy development. in this sense, I am monitoring the advancements that are taking place in the regulation at international, European and national level in this area.

I have been following developments in supply chains for more than 4 years. I am particularly interested in best practices, what works and what does not, how companies and financial institutions can rely on transparency and traceability, how to help suppliers and companies improve their standards, what role and responsibilities financial institutions have... This course is an opportunity for me to formalize and strengthen my knowledge in this subject.

I have created a group in LinkedIn where I post materials related to supply chains. The group is called "Sustainable Supply Chains E&S Specialist" and you are all welcome to join

Hi Mariana

Just to let you know I requested to join your linkedIn group. I will be developing an e learning tool for the staff of AFD on how to assess their funding requests to ensure there are no adverse effects on international labour standards, especially no child labour and no forced labour. I would be interested in any tools, checklists on this subject that could be useful.
