In this Podcast Rosey Hurst, Founder and Director of Impactt, gives a new perspective on Human rights in Supply Chain. Instead of trying to check certain human rights standards, the idea is to start from the workers perspective and try to achieve adequate pay, reliability of income and respect. This way the root causes of human rights abuses can be addressed and eliminated.
