​NBIM launches child rights guide for garment sector with UNICEF

first_imgChild labour was a critical concern, it said, but children were also impacted by weak maternity protection for working mothers, for example and by the absence of childcare and breastfeeding support in factories.The manager of the NOK10.3trn (€977bn) sovereign wealth fund said the new tool contained metrics companies could use to monitor and report on child rights in their own processes, and on the outcomes of their actions at the factory level.It said the guide was the product of a two-year partnership with UNICEF, during which time the two had been working to examine and raise awareness about the clothing sector’s impact on children’s rights and ways in which companies could address this.Charlotte Petri Gornitzka, deputy executive director at UNICEF, said: “As the socio-economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic threaten the livelihoods of millions of workers in global supply chains, children’s rights must be at the heart of business action.”NBIM said the guidance tool outlines concrete steps firms could take to improve their impact on children, including integrating child rights into their policies and management systems; strengthening supplier capacity to address child rights and root causes; supporting governments; and advocating for children’s rights.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine? Read the digital edition here. The manager of Norway’s sovereign wealth fund has co-authored a report on the rights of children in the garment and footwear industries, and a guide for companies on how to uphold them, in partnership with UN agency UNICEF.Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM), which manages the Government Pension Fund Global (GPFG), said the guidance was intended for use by garment companies who would like to integrate child rights into their sourcing policies and production practices.Carine Smith Ihenacho, chief corporate governance officer at NBIM, said: “Children must be at the heart of companies’ sustainability efforts as they are among the most vulnerable members of society and the basis for future prosperity.”UNICEF said it estimated that more than 100m children were affected in the garment and footwear supply chain globally, not only as workers but also as children of working parents, and community members near farms and factories.last_img read more

Men’s hockey: No. 17 Badgers look to stay atop the Big Ten with third straight sweep

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team returns home to face No. 10 Penn State University in a top-20 battle as the Badgers look to build on their five-game winning streak and stay atop the Big Ten rankings.The Badgers (15-8-1, 8-2-0 Big Ten) are coming off of two consecutive weekend sweeps. They took down Michigan State University in East Lansing last weekend to remain in a first-place tie with Minnesota University.With 15 wins through their first 24 games, Wisconsin has their second most victories in a season through 24 contests since the 2005-06 NCAA National Championship team that had 18.Men’s hockey: Revival of Wisconsin hockey is hereThe last time the University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team was at the top of the conference, Lebron James was Read…The Badgers will face a Penn State team desperate for a win this weekend as the 10th ranked Nittany Lions find themselves on a four-game skid coming into Madison. After losing just two of their first 20 games, Penn State got swept for the first time all season last weekend at Minnesota.Despite the opposite trending teams, Wisconsin will have their hands full against Penn State (16-6-2, 5-4-1), who sit within striking distance of the Badgers in third place in the Big Ten and are looking to rebound in the standings.Defense could prove to be key for the Badgers, who have given up less than three goals in each game during their five-game winning streak. It will be difficult to continue this trend against Penn State because they average the most goals per game in the nation at 4.17. The Badgers won’t shy away, however, as they held the nation’s second highest scoring team — Ohio State, which averages 4.08 goals per game — to just three goals in two games. Wisconsin has also benefitted from their 4.2 goals per game over that five-game span.Men’s hockey: Badgers keep it rolling, sweep Spartans to stay atop Big TenThe University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team continued their momentum over the weekend, sweeping Michigan State in East Lansing to Read…As the Badgers sit in a first-place tie at the halfway point in conference, head coach Tony Granato notes there is still work to be done.“We can’t look at it right now and say, ‘OK lets celebrate, we’re ahead of where we’re scheduled to be,’” Granato said. “We’ve got work to do, and we can’t get caught up with ‘this is how we’re gonna win the Big Ten.’ We’ve got a great competitor coming up in Penn State this weekend, and our way of doing this season has been week-to-week and day-to-day.”Face-off for both Friday and Saturday is set for 7 p.m. CST, with both games being played in Madison at the Kohl Center.last_img read more
