TO ACHIEVE THE IMPACT ECONOMY, THE WORLD NEEDS RESPONSIBLE VALUE CHAINS

Responsible value chains are a critical part of the Impact Economy, an economy in which work, entrepreneurship, innovation, and technology engender inclusive welfare.

Mango farmer for responsible value chains

We define responsible value chains as value chains in which human rights are respected.

This includes addressing both social and environmental issues in the value chain. Amongst others, all people in the value chain must be paid or earn a living wage or living income, are not subject to forced labour or unsafe working conditions and are not discriminated against in terms of pay or promotion opportunities. Respecting human rights also means minimizing environmental impact to ensure a healthy environment. Our full list of human rights is in line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and in the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct and can be found here.

We support organisations in measuring & reporting on impact. We use data-driven insights to advise organisations on how to manage and transform their social and environmental impact to drive change and push for responsible value chains. By collaborating with and working for social enterprises, SMEs, businesses and NGOs, we aim for value chains in which human and environmental rights are respected.
