At Think Global, we’re committed to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals, including Goal 12 ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’. Through our Supply Cha!nge project, we’re collaborating with 28 partners across Europe to work towards fair working conditions for all, and sustainable production that does not damage our environment.
Funded through the European Union, Supply Cha!nge is campaigning to stop environmental and human rights abuses along global supply chains, with a specific focus on supermarket own-brand products. Project activities include research on the supply chains of particular products, public awareness-raising events and initiatives, and lobbying and advocacy work.
In the UK, we’re a member of the Groceries Code Action Network (GCAN), a coalition of NGOs, unions and food groups advocating to extend the role and remit of the Groceries Code Adjudicator further along supermarket supply chains, to include indirect suppliers.
Download the case for extending the remit of the Groceries Code Adjudicator or read the blog from Traidcraft, GCAN Coordinator. Our joint letter was recently published in the Guardian. Read the letter here.
In June 2017, we held a webinar with Professor Christopher Tankou, an expert on the cocoa supply chain from University of Dschang, Cameroon. To learn about some of the social and environmental effects of the global demand for chocolate, watch the recording on Think Global’s Vimeo channel, and download the webinar slides.
