We’re a networking platform set up to provide opportunities for sharing local knowledge and expertise on ethical trade issues in countries around the world. We’re led by the Ethical Trading Initiatives of Denmark, Norway and the UK, alliances of companies, trade unions and NGOs that promote respect for workers’ rights globally.
What we do
Within countries, the LRN supports multi-stakeholder partnerships to share lessons and experience in managing human rights, environmental and social risks in the workplace.
We provide members with:
- Access to a comprehensive database of organisations in over 50 countries
- Regularly updated country briefing papers
- Multi stakeholder workshops focussing on ethical trade held in production countries
Cooperation and partnership between network members is a bilateral arrangement. The Local Resources Network is not responsible for actions, projects and programmes carried out within partnerships, although where possible we seek to quality assure local organisations accepted into the network.
Where we work
Our on-line database of companies, trade unions, NGOs and local stakeholders is active in over 50 countries.
