The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights – an integral part of BSCI 2.0 - place remediation and effective operational grievance mechanisms at the heart of due diligence in the responsibility of business enterprises to respect human and labour rights. Incorporated fully into BSCI 2.0, these topics are essential for producers to understand how to improve their social compliance when implementing BSCI within the supply chain.
With this in mind, the BSCI Academy –the training centre for participants and producers of BSCI - now offers new capacity building workshops for BSCI food and non-food producers, based around grievance mechanisms and remediation measures.
A workshop for BSCI food producers is now open for registration on the topic of “Understanding the Remediation Process and Grievance Mechanism”. Following on from the first semester ‘Introduction to the BSCI implementation, Social Management System and Cascade Effect’, this one-and-a-half-day workshop focuses on understanding the remediation process and grievance mechanisms on how to implement them within their organisations and supply chains.
BSCI non-food producers can take part in a newly-launched workshop to empower producers to build effective grievance mechanisms in the workplace. Developed together with Impactt Ltd, following an extensive pilot project with 13 factories in China, attendees will be informed on what a grievance mechanism is and will work on how to set up and operate one.
