How to get closer to suppliers to tackle child labour

This week: Elaine McKay, international affairs director at JTI, talks with Innovation Forum’s Toby Webb about why getting to know farmers in a supply chain is a key to understanding their labour challenges and eliminating child labour. The problems are complex, McKay argues, but engaging with them is part of meeting Sustainable Development Goal targets.

Plus: a new science-based targets standard on the horizon; Facebook and Google go carbon neutral; CDP highlights apparel sector water failings; and, New Zealand to require financial sector reporting on climate risks, in the news digest.
