While it’s been publicly recognised that when grown unsustainably, palm oil can have negative environmental impacts, labour issues and related social impacts have had less attention, until more recently. Various NGO’s and media have highlighted poor working conditions in oil palm plantations, such as excessive working hours, occupational health and safety hazards, and more seriously, child labour, forced labour, and the trafficking of migrant workers, among other issues.
The task force is led by Verite SEA and has a balanced representation of all stakeholders, including individuals who have strong technical knowledge and experience with labour issues, which will help to drive and guide the task force to meet its intention, with the required momentum. Further information and updates on the Labour Rights Task Force will be available on the website soon.
