Tracking forced labour, accidents at work and climate impacts in EU’s consumption of fossil and mineral raw materials

SAVE THE DATE
23 November | 10:00 AM CET

 

This new study finds that EU’s supply chains are linked with 1.2 million cases of forced labour (across all sectors) and minerals specifically are responsible for major socio-environmental impacts mainly in South Asia, Asia-Pacific and Africa.

Join us on Wednesday 23 November for the launch of a new study on the impacts of EU imports of fossil and mineral materials. The study discusses EU’s policy priorities, domestically and internationally, and builds on the approaches and methods used for the textile (2020) and food (2021) spillover studies.

During the event, high level speakers from the  UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, the International Labour OrganizationDeutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the University of Sydney will present the key findings of the study and provide the opportunity to answer questions from the audience during the Q&A session.
