TEN PRINCIPLES & OUTCOMES
Unicef’s programme is based on the Children’s Rights and Business Principles (CRBP). The CRBP is a set of ten voluntary principles developed by Unicef, the UN Global Compact and Save the Children.
The project has caused positive change both in the participating factories and within Hunkemöller. In the factories we’ve seen the adaptation of a children’s rights policy, which has also been cascaded down the supply chain. Additionally, the factories strengthened their maternity provisions and rights for pregnant women. Both factories are currently also setting up daycare centres with a focus on accessibility and quality of care. We have also seen improvements in the wider community regarding handwashing practices as a consequence of this project.
Within Hunkemöller we’ve updated our policies and implemented a remediation plan if we were to find children in the supply chain. We’re now much more focused on tackling the root causes of child labour. We have also implemented a new way of mapping our supply chain.
